Perilous: A Chronicle of Prisoner Unrest Across the US and Canada

Perilous Chronicle is an independent digital research and media project focusing on prisons, protest, unrest, and repression in the US and Canada. Combining in-depth journalism with independent research and data analysis, Perilous seeks to amplify the voices of those resisting carceral systems and other forms of state repression. 

Perilous Chronicle is run by a closed collective of volunteer journalists and researchers throughout the US and Canada. Together, our collective brings decades of experience in supporting prisoner movements and resistance to our work as journalists and researchers. 

Perilous is supported by the donations of individual readers and supporters. We rely on your support to do our work. Donate here
