In 2012 Douglas Keillor was awarded a Fulbright-García Robles Fellowship to research excessive juvenile detention in Mexico City. As a result, the Mexico City Superior Court invited him to help implement a pretrial release program. Due to the lack of organizations working on international juvenile justice reform, in 2013 Mr. Keillor founded the U.S.-based 501(c)(3) Juvenile Justice Advocates International (JJA). Justicia Juvenil Internacional México A.C. is JJA’s Mexican-registered non-profit.
