Photo Essay: Art 180 & Performing Statistics March in 3rd Annual Juvenile Justice Parade

by | Nov 6, 2017 | PHOTOGRAPHY

Over the weekend, local organizations Rise for Youth and Performing Statistics joined Art 180 to march in the 3rd Annual Juvenile Justice Parade. With the rallying point starting on Marshall Street across from the General District Court, over 100 participants gathered in support of those impacted by the school-to-prison pipeline. A few powerful community activists, as well as few formerly incarcerated teens, spoke to the masses before the parade commenced. Parade participants included artists, community and faith leaders, teens formerly incarcerated and not, as well as local citizens. Making its way from the heart of downtown, the parade hopped on Broad Street and made its way to Belvidere before wrapping up in Abner Clay Park. The lively and powerful event and the highlight of November’s First Fridays.

Check out some of the best photos from the parade below:
