Pace Center for Girls advocates for legislation that develops comprehensive systems of care for girls at risk of delinquency and sexual exploitation; provides access to comprehensive wrap-around services, including well-being and mental health; and removes barriers to education and employment for girls.
Pace partners with federal, state, and local governments to provide holistic delinquency prevention and early intervention model that diverts girls from the costly system's involvement and guides them toward a path to success at home, in school, and in their communities, and decreases the cost to taxpayers.
Issues We Support
Increased access to gender-responsive prevention and mental health services.
Juvenile justice reform focused on providing alternatives to arrest and decreasing racial/ethnic disparity.
Education reform focused on increased flexibility for students and access to suicide prevention & substance abuse services in schools.
