Sending Messages: The Podcast

Utah’s juvenile justice system has gone through a lot of change in the past couple of years. As part of an effort to implement restorative justice practices, our state is trying to lessen the amount of kids in the system by placing those of us struggling with violence, addiction, and mental health issues into treatment instead of incarceration. In celebration of Youth Justice Awareness Month, today’s episode features five pieces about shifts in the system from the perspective of the young people within it.

Sending Messages contributors make individual pieces in a process of self reflection, often speaking on their own lives and experiences. Heard together, however, these pieces can paint a broader picture of what young people in the juvenile justice system are going through in general. Today on the podcast, young women housed in facilities and treatment centers around the Salt Lake Valley share their struggles with addiction and social isolation, the hard path toward change, and their visions for their futures.

City, N. and Bru the Mac, reflecting on their paths to incarceration and considering how different resources and responses to their behavior in the past could have impacted the present.
