THE STORY:

HELP US TELL THE STORY OF A YOUNG LIFE CAUGHT IN THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM: 

At age 14, George Stinney was one of the youngest people to ever be executed in the United States for a crime. The jury convened for 10 minutes and he was ultimately electrocuted on June 16, 1944 in Columbia, South Carolina just 81 days after the crime was committed. Almost 70 years after his execution, young people are frequently still denied fair and equal justice. In the memory of George Stinney, we ask you to help the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange (JJIE.org) create important juvenile justice journalism looking at the lives and circumstances of teenagers involved in the juvenile justice system. For example, We recently wrote about a 14-year-old with severe mental health problems locked away in an Illinois detention center 500 miles from his home – far from his caring mother and other support systems.

Some of these children have committed terrible crimes; many have not. We care about fair and equal justice as required by the laws.

Our journalism will bear witness to the lives of these children and then let you decide if our nation is doing the best it can for these children.

Approximately $3,000 will allow us to assign, edit and fund an excellent journalist to investigate and write an in-depth story about one of these children lost in the system.

The more $3,000 increments we receive, the more kids and failing justice practices we can highlight. Thank you in advance for helping us to shine a spotlight onto one of the darkest corners of our society. Without you, the darkness will remain.
