Pinned Down? Rise Up!

2017-2018, DESIGN AND ILLUSTRATION
The “PINS” (Person In Need of Supervision) program is a legal process that introduces a young person to the criminal justice system, and which can cause immediate and long-term harm to young people and their families by increasing the likelihood of detentions and out-of-home placements. We collaborated with CUP and CCFY to design a poster that illuminates the downfalls of the PINS process and empowers families to consider community-based alternatives to PINS for their young people.

In collaboration with The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and Community Connections for Youth (CCFY) as part of CUP’s 2017 Making Policy Public program. Designed with Jeffrey Louie.
