Raise the Age Public Hearing: Asheville
North Carolina is one of only two states in the country that automatically charges 16- and 17-year- olds as adults in our criminal justice system. This outdated policy harms our state and our young people in countless ways, and it must change. The Raise the Age NC Coalition is urging people to attend important public hearings being held by the NC Court Commission on Administrative Law and Justice to make their voices heard. On Thursday, August 18, the commission will hold the third in the series of public hearings in Asheville. RSVP here.
