Abstract This article challenges juvenile defenders to participate in the growing demand for holistic reforms in the broader juvenile justice system. In order to achieve long lasting results for their clients, juvenile defenders are challenged to build their knowledge and awareness of juvenile justice reform by participating in youth and policy advocacy, in addition to the daily work of legal representation. This article also challenges juvenile justice advocates to include juvenile defenders when devising advocacy strategies and building coalitions to push for reforms. Juvenile defenders are necessary, knowledgeable, and powerful allies in the fight for juvenile justice reform.
