TYRONE FRIEDMAN
Youth Organizer, Just Kids Campaign

“Justice for one, justice for all”

As the Youth Organizer for CLIA’s Just Kids Campaign, Tyrone plans events and trainings for the Campaign’s Core Alliance of Youth Leaders to develop their skills as spokespeople and community organizers. Tyrone is an alumni of the Core Alliance of Youth Leaders. After seeing a presentation from the Just Kids Campaign at his GED class, Tyrone felt a strong pull to join the Campaign because he was automatically charged as and adult when he was 16 years old. Since, he has organized community events, spoken on panels, and testified in Annapolis to stop the automatic prosecution of youth as adults in Maryland.

When Tyrone is not at work he likes to play video games with his son and spend as much time with his family as possible.

Tyrone is an expert in fixing things around the house.
