With current systems in place, there is no sign of things turning around; in fact, the problems may be spiralling out of control. We unequivocally recognise things must change.
For things to change, we need to instil a sense of urgency within our community, take on the responsibility and attack the root cause of the problem. Simply sending our youth into an environment where violence is prevalent or accepted as the norm just cannot be the answer.
These complicated issues highlight the need for a collective community-driven approach toward creating strong, healthy families and producing safer environments in a smart, economical way that benefits all of us. We call this smart justice.
