APA's Public Interest Government Relations Office (PI-GRO) participated in a panel at the 2012 National Convening of the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth on Nov. 15 at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. PI-GRO staff discussed APA's contributions to the fair sentencing of youth, including APA's influential amicus curiae briefs submitted to the Supreme Court in cases on capital punishment and sentences of life without parole for juveniles. The meeting provided an opportunity for partners from around the country to build relationships and share strategies in response to the recent Supreme Court decision abolishing mandatory life without parole sentences for children, Miller v.
