Tell Governor Moore: veto HB814!

Maryland needs Governor Moore to veto HB814, for our kids and our communities. If allowed to go into effect, the consequences for kids, especially kids of color, will be real and harsh.

It will subject very young children to the juvenile justice system and give prosecutors too much unchecked discretion over the lives of our young people.

HB814 passed the House and Senate, but Governor Moore can still veto the bill and ensure that Maryland focused on solutions that actually make our communities safer and don't harm vulnerable kids.
