Dream Beyond Bars Report

A Youth Vision for Alameda County’s Juvenile Justice System

A collaboration between Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice &
Urban Peace Movement

This report is the culmination of a year-long research project undertaken by the Dream Beyond Bars Fellows. With first-hand knowledge of the harms our current “justice” system inflicts on young people, their families, and their communities, the Dream Beyond Bars Fellows equipped themselves with the research tools needed to gather data from community members as well as those directly affected by the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
