Raise the Age Toolkit

Now that Raise the Age has passed, we must hold our government accountable to proper implementation. Check out our toolkit to see how you can support the continuing Raise the Age effort in North Carolina.

Raise the Age: A Short Film 


Raise the Age is a short 8-minute film on the impacts of charging young people as adults. This film makes the case for raising the age of juvenile jurisdictions in North Carolina to 18 years of age.

Raise the Age includes interviews with law enforcement officials, former state representatives, professors, and impacted youth and their families. It is a great resource for gathering a community to discuss the #RaiseTheAgeNC campaign and mobilize youth around the issue.
