FLY at the State Assembly

Nick Jasso, FLY’s Youth Voice Policy Coach, advocated for AB 2658 at the CA Assembly Public Safety Committee. FLY is proud to announce that the bill successfully moved foward! This will lead to much needed reform to address a variety of problems with electronic monitoring in the juvenile legal system.

Fresh Lifelines for Youth (FLY) is an award-winning nonprofit serving Bay Area youth impacted by the justice system. Our programs connect young people with positive mentors and role models, promote their understanding of the law and their rights, and support them to become leaders among their peers and in their communities. Together with our young people, we also help our justice systems become more just, humane, and equitable. As a result, FLY increases safety and decreases the costs and consequences of crime.

“FLY gave me the hope that I can be the person I want to be. And I’m taking steps to be that person every day.”
