Mozilla Firefox is giving $50,000 to the fundraiser that raises the most! Let's make sure it's Strategies for Youth!
Strategies for Youth is the only organization that exists exclusively to improve police/youth interactions. Law enforcement officers in our country don't receive the training and support they need to deal with young people and far too many kids are being arrested - often at school - for behaviors that in many cases, with the right training, police could resolve without resorting to arrest. We train law enforcement officers and youth, and collaborate with communities to advocate for proactive and positive treatment of youth by police.
The donation you make to Strategies for Youth today directly impacts young people, particularly young people of color, by reducing arrests. And the donation you make to Strategies for Youth today impacts law enforcement officers by making their jobs safer and their work with youth more effective.
