Progeny is an advocacy group of young people who have been touched by the juvenile justice system who advocate for change in policy and how it impacts youth in the juvenile justice system. They meet once per week to discuss campaign strategy, actionable goals to connect in the community, their own life experiences, and issues related to reforming the juvenile justice system that create more proactive and healthy solutions instead of putting youth in jail.
