This week on Dismantling Injustice, we talk to Aaliyah and Mike from Youth Represent, which uses a youth-driven approach to advocacy and peer education in addition to providing legal services. Prioritizing the voices of young people who have experience with criminalization is critical in the fight for youth justice in New York. Aaliyah, a passionate activist since her teens, shares why changing the criminal and juvenile justice systems has always been her priority. Mike explains how Youth Represent's comprehensive approach meets the diverse needs of young people impacted by the system.
