NOW is the time for those of us who are white to take a stand.
Did you know that a $210 million youth jail is being built in Seattle? Youth crime has decreased by 50% but racial disproportionality has increased: young Black men are now 4.5 times more likely to be jailed in Seattle.
That is NOT what justice looks like.
NOT IN OUR NAME.
A community art project on the criminal justice system.
The voices of leaders from Youth Undoing Institutional Racism.
