Research & Advocacy

Research and data analysis are the foundation of DC Lawyers for Youth’s policy advocacy.  Since 2007, DCLY has executed advocacy campaigns that leverage legal strategies, policy advocacy, research, strategic communications, and art/media/culture. DCLY analyzes data from local government agencies, DC Public Schools, Metropolitan Police Department, and other jurisdictions to inform our policy positions and provide the bases for our issue briefs, testimony, and other publications.
