The Campaign Against Indiscriminate Juvenile Shackling (CAIJS), created in August 2014, works across the country to support advocates in their efforts to amend laws, court rules, policies and practices in their own states to end the automatic shackling of children in juvenile court. CAIJS is a project of the National Campaign to Reform State Juvenile Justice Systems and the National Juvenile Defender Center. As states around the country reform shackling, important lessons have emerged about the best arguments against the practice and the most common objections that advocates must overcome. This updated toolkit reflects those lessons.
