JusticeLA Jail Bed Drop Project
JusticeLA's Jail Bed Drop Project was a creative intervention on Christmas Eve 2017 meant to bring attention to families separated by incarceration during the holiday season and encourage a public conversation our jail system. Artists used over 50 jail beds as a canvas and transformed them into symbols with a message. L.A. County is looking to build two new jails with nearly 6,000 beds. Beds are supposed to be where we sleep, where we dream. Jail beds represent trauma, shame, torture and death. Through this project, we envisioned a new, freer and more just world.
