The League of Women Voters of Sanibel will hold a virtual conversation with juvenile justice expert Charlotte Nycklemoe on Jan. 21 at noon via Zoom.

She will share the issues that will be discussed at the upcoming Legislative session on behalf of the citizenry of the state of Florida. Nycklemoe’s goal is to do all she can to help misdirected, at-risk youth to become productive members of society.

As a mother of daughters who were diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illnesses, she is aware that the Florida juvenile justice system is in great need of reform. Her personal witness of the critical events that cause family and societal hardships have given Nycklemoe impetus to fight for the rights of the mentally ill.

Her experiences led to a directorship on the Minnesota State Board of the National Association of Mental Illness and chairmanship of its Legislative Committee. Convinced that behavioral health is intertwined with at-risk youth behavior and juvenile delinquency, she is utilizing her leadership skills and knowledge in chairing the League of Women Voters of Florida’s Juvenile Delinquency Action Committee. Nycklemoe is also on the board of directors of the Florida State League.

There will time for attendees to ask questions via Zoom’s chat room function.
