Welcome to the Coalition for Juvenile Justice

Hey Everybody!

The first week of my internship is finally complete. As I said before, my internship will be with the Coalition for Juvenile Justice. It’s a nonprofit organization that advocates for reform in the criminal justice system.

They emphasize on rehabilitation of juvenile offenders and finding alternative options instead of incarceration. My job for the next two weeks is to help prepare for a conference in Texas late next week, and then the DMC Conference in late November.

This Saturday we had the privilege of a White House tour. These tend to be very difficult to get, so it was a pretty exclusive event! We saw the East Room (where receptions, ceremonies, press conferences, weddings, dinners, and concerts are held), Green Room, Blue Room, Red Room, and the State Dining Room.

The halls are filled with portraits of former presidents and first ladies, official china used by presidents, and other artifacts. These pictures are from the East Room and just outside the front door.

It’s been rainy for the past few days here so we haven’t done much other sight seeing besides the White House. Check back for a post about the H Street Festival!
