Advocates for Abandoned Adolescents

http://www.advocatesforabandonedadolescents.org/

Supporting and campaigning for "justice" for children caught up in the "system".

Many children sentenced to prison, forgotten by officials, society and families, tried as adults, sentenced to long, harsh sentences. Many are innocent, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Children are still in their growing years, very vulnerable.
