Artists boycott the new youth jail in Seattle

Seattle artists say NO NEW YOUTH JAIL!

Seattle, King County, and Washington State artists DEMAND that our county and state stop building prisons for our youth.

We, the undersigned artists, will not accept compensation to decorate prisons and jails. We will not apply for grants for programs that prolong the cycle of incarceration, racism, and harm.

As artists, we will not accept 1% for art, as long as 21% of youth in detention are Black while making up just 6% of Washington’s youth population.

We say no to youth jails!

Youth jails don’t work. We won’t work for jails!
