Our Work


Underground’s goal is to get Black kids free from the systems that oppress them. We can’t solve white supremacy in a day, but we can pull work relentlessly to end mass incarceration. In order to get Black kids free we:

Provide funds for bail and legal defense. Nintey eight percent of youth in Louisiana’s juvenile justice system report having no contact with a lawyer. 

We build high quality , full service schools for students who have been involved in the system of mass incarceration that work to liberate young people such that they can live lives of leadership in their chosen communities.
