Jasson Perez is a Chicago-born organizer, parent, subpar rapper in the rap group BBU and Third World liberation romantic. As a high school dropout and formerly incarcerated youth, Perez discovered on a personal level what’s at stake when schools become a pipeline to prison. Perez worked as a labor organizer with SEIU Local 73, working with the support staff at Chicago Public Schools in the fight against school closings since 2004 when CPS announced Renaissance 2010. He currently serves as national co-chair of Black Youth Project 100, Black Youth Project’s nationwide network of one hundred young black activists working to build a transformative justice movement that centers on a feminist, queer, differently abled, and decolonial praxis.[1]
