#NoKidsinPrison is a national campaign to end youth incarceration and invest in community-based supports, services and opportunities for youth. This site features information on where youth are locked up in America, how much we spend on incarcerating youth and the racial and ethnic disparities in youth incarceration.

The project was created by Performing Statistics in partnership with the Youth First Initiative and Columbia Justice Lab. The site is dedicated to all those we’ve lost in the fight to abolish prisons, and the many more young people whose futures are wide open with the prospect of a prison-free world.
