First steps

CRIN has identified at least 40 States in which children are still being sentenced to death, to life in detention and/or to corporal punishment. If you believe your State is using inhuman sentencing but is not on the list, please email us with details.

If you are in, or involved with one of the States on the list, please read and comment on the CRIN State report and fill in the CRIN questionnaire. This will identify:

  • how much is known about inhuman sentencing in your State
  • what research is needed, and
  • who, if anyone, is already involved in advocacy on the issue.
