Join us for Lyrics From Lockdown & the Raise the Age Community Conversation Series

Print Friendly

The Correctional Association’s Raise the Age Campaign is partnering with the National Black Theatre and Lyrics From Lockdown throughout the month of February to produce a series of community conversations focused on the harms of prosecuting children as adults.

Concerned community members, advocates, youth, parents, faith-based leaders and officials are all invited to purchase tickets to Lyrics and then participate in these Sunday afternoon community conversations. Alongside our partners at NBT and Lyrics From Lockdown, we aim to raise public awareness and community involvement on this timely and crucial issue.

The Raise the Age community conversation series will culminate with a free Town Hall Event on Saturday, February 23 at 3:30 pm.

Please refer to the below schedule for upcoming Lyrics From Lockdown performances and Raise the Age community events.

We hope you can make it to at least one of these exciting events!
