Article about NYCJJ’s Raise The Age Effort Published in “The Bronx Ink”

An article about NYCJJ’s “Raise The Age” campaign appeared in “The Bronx Ink,” an online news site operated by students of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. The article states:

“Since he left the bench in 2008, former New York judge Michael Corriero has been on a mission to change the age of criminal responsibility in the state. Corriero, who served as a judge in various state courts for 28 years, has been touring New York talking to community and family organizations about the “Raise the Age” campaign, a movement that aims to increase the age of criminal responsibility from 16 to 18. Now, he and others say, the turning point could come as soon as January when reform of the current laws will come before the state legislature.”

We extend our thanks to Bronx Ink reporter Jika Gonzales for attending our South Bronx Raise The Age Community Forum, as well as for her efforts to raise awareness of this important cause.
