I was asked by the director of my agency to be the champion for young women in the juvenile justice system. I was introduced to the Coalition of Equal Access for Girls and became a member of the Coalition's board and with the charge of this organization and its mission, made great strides towards ensuring equal access for girls in the juvenile justice system and creating a solid gender responsive continuum of care. The Coalition has a strong voice in the legisature and was key to creating equal access laws that guide current practice. Young women in the juvenile justice and child welfare system are better off today because of the passionate and tireless work of this non-profit!
