Issues: Children's Services
Position in Brief
The League of Women Voters of Illinois believes that the State should play the leading role in meeting the needs of children and their families. This responsibility applies across systems of care regardless of age or legal status of the children.
The League supports a juvenile court system that provides opportunities for effective protection, treatment, and rehabilitation. The League opposes the automatic transfer of children to the criminal court and the death penalty for children.
