Come out and support DaJon Ford, who was arrested and charged as an adult back in 2013, when he was only 17 years old. He has been waiting almost 4 years for a trial in Santa Rita Jail. We made a lot of noise in support of Dajon at his court hearing last month, but we know we could get a lot more support for his next court hearing:
Last year, Proposition 57 passed, which took the power away from district attorneys to directly try juveniles as adults, and put that power back in the hands of judges. Dajon now has the opportunity to transfer to a juvenile court and this is what the court hearing will be about.
It is important for Dajon to recieve the most support as possible from friends, family, and community members.
You can also sign the petition to address the issue at hand: youth need to be treated as youth, and not as adults. Share and sign this petition to not only advocate for youth justice, but also to show District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and the Judge that the community stands in solidarity with Dajon and expects to see the justice we need to achieve for him.
