The bill was filed more than a year ago and has yet to be passed by the House or Senate. It would create a more centralized system for tracking and administering youth placement.

Of course, that’s only a portion of Paris’ evidence, as she once again outlined the physical, emotional, and sexual abuse she claims she suffered while at a youth residential treatment center.

Paris has previously accused Utah’s Provo Canyon School of being more like an obedience camp, claiming that pupils were locked up for 20 hours at a stretch and were frequently demeaned by the personnel.

While not a child welfare residence, Paris says she sees a connection between her suffering and what she believes many children in the system face.

Paris has previously spoken with lawmakers for this cause; in 2022, she visited the White House and spoke with senators from both parties.
