Hennepin & Ramsey County Propose Joint Juvenile Facility

IN Equality is a St Paul community organizing group focused on the transformation of the criminal justice system. They have formed a coalition opposing the proposed plan by Hennepin and Ramsey County to build a joint juvenile ‘treatment’ facility. Supporters of this proposal say “the new facility will save both counties money and upgrade the aging facilities” The goals of this group are to oppose the Hennepin and Ramsey Joint Juvenile Facility among other reforms. Damon Drake is one of the organizers of this group and he gave Rico Morales more insight from his experience and first-hand knowledge working on these issues.
