SKU: N/A Category:


Alisa Bierria, Mimi Kim, and Clasissa Rojas, eds.

The editors of this issue offer unique advantages due to their experience with grassroots organizations, antiviolence activism within communities of color, and participants in debates about prisons and police responses to violence. Their feminist praxis as scholar/activists is reflected in the scope and breadth of this volume. Transdisciplinary and transnational in scope, contributors maintain high standards of political ethics, while maintaining a noteworthy commitment to mobilizing for real change. This issue of Social Justice delivers on all essential dimensions of the debate on intimate violence and the challenges posed by addressing it outside the framework of solutions offered by the state and allied nonprofits.
