#SchoolsNotPrisons is a leading campaign at the intersection of arts, culture and justice.

A thriving online community dedicated to ending mass incarceration through the power of art, music, culture and activism. #SchoolsNotPrisons partners with communities hardest hit by mass incarceration to transform the justice system across the country. 

Join us for the Stop the Violence Virtual Tour!  #SchoolsNotPrisons will be bringing you nonstop music, art & activism! In partnership with the Community Justice Action Fund (CJAF), the purpose of the tour is to uplift communities most impacted by gun violence and mass incarceration.

The tour will raise awareness of local campaigns aimed at investing in alternatives to state violence while encouraging communities to vote in the critical 2020 November elections.

It’s time we invest in communities NOT prisons! 



The United States spends more than $80 billion dollars every year on incarcerating youth and adults in jails, prisons, juvenile halls and immigrant prisons. Since 1990, state and local spending on higher education, like colleges and universities, hasn’t increased at all while spending on jails and prisons has drastically increased by 89%.

It is time to end this culture of punishment, and replace it with a culture of prevention. 

Let's invest in

#SchoolsNotPrisons launched in 2016 as a free music and art tour in partnership with California communities most impacted by the overuse of punishment and incarceration. Today we continue to strive to divest out of prisons and promote investment in people not prisons.
