About Youth Represent

Mission Statement

Youth Represent envisions a world where the racist legal system has been dismantled and BIack, Latiné, Indigenous, and other youth of color have the freedom and power to live their full lives. We use legal services, policy advocacy, peer education, and other tools to build power and opportunity for youth who the criminal legal system.

Description

Youth Represent was founded in 2006. While representing youth facing job discrimination, we saw that clients’ legal problems went far beyond employment. Youth Represent was created from a recognition that young people need comprehensive representation to address their diverse and unique legal issues. What began as a single attorney working from a borrowed desk is now a citywide organization that provides free legal services to more than one thousand youth annually.
