KMAM is helping Juvenile Court of Memphis & Shelby County & Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative encourage and support the families, parents, grandparents, and guardians we all serve by helping spread the word about this youth justice community event. The goal of this event is to inform parents about the negative effects and trajectories for children caused by trauma, mental health issues, and using law enforcement or detention as a scare tactic. As well as providing resources for parents to become advocates for their children and to assist in times of crisis. It does take a village…"A Just Village: Our Children, Our Responsibility"!
