More about us and our project,
You may know us as SoCon12, CSJ or SMIATL but we are actually a non-profit organization called the Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University. Our first journalism project,, the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange  just turned one year old and we couldn’t be prouder.  is the only journalism initiative covering issues that affect kids and the law.  In just over one year, has reached 33,000 unique monthly visitors, dozens of op-ed contributors from all walks of life, resources for parents,  a multimedia series called Journeys that examines children and their struggles with tough issues, and Bokeh,’s multimedia arts site with a visual focus on children, the law and youth culture.

We want to continue providing a voice for those kids who are not heard and shining a light on issues that affect children in the legal system through . . . but to do that,  we need your support.
