Perilous is a digital research and media project documenting and publicizing acts of prisoner resistance and unrest across the US and Canada. We hope to include every event since 2010 in which two or more prisoners take action inside any type of carceral facility–state prisons, immigrant detention centers, city, county jails, federal prisons, juvenile centers, and more.
