Performing Statistics is a cultural organizing project that uses art to model, imagine, and advocate for alternatives to youth incarceration. A group of artists, advocates, and organizers, we believe in a world without youth prisons and connect young people impacted by the juvenile justice system with the community and systems leaders through the arts.
