Write an Opinion Column for Us

Would you be interested in writing an opinion column for the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange?

Our readers are government officials, academics, attorneys, people who work for juvenile justice reform and justice-involved families.

We’re interested in a broad canvas: trauma, community-based alternatives, evidence-based practices, dual-status kids, shackling, the school-to-prison pipeline, indigent defense, racial-ethnic fairness, reentry, legislation, mental health and substance abuse.

Our opinion columns run 700 to 1,200 words (examples). Our readers are hungry for new ideas, insightful observations and even controversial suggestions. We do not pay for these columns.
