Community Engagement on WCLK

This week on The Local Take I discuss #RaiseTheAgeGA with attorney Sherri Jefferson.

Ms. Jefferson explains the reasons that she began this quest in 2005. Seventeen year olds are charged as adults and incarcerated with adults.  Even though in every other social construct if you are 17 you are not considered an adult.  You cannot legally buy alcohol or tobacco products, get married or enter the military without your parent's consent.

This year New York and North Carolina raised the age in their states.  

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by Georgia Cares.  Saturday, August 5 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take on WCLK,  I'll talk with Sharonda Madison of Georgia Cares about Medicare and the upcoming Open Enrollment period which will begin October 15. 

Listen to The Local Take on WCLK Saturday morning at 7am as we continue to explore problems and solutions with the juvenile justice system. This week I talk with Pamela Perkins Carn of the Interfaith Children's Movement about two bills that passed in the last legislative session.
