About this book

This cutting-edge collection of essays presents to the reader leading voices within food justice, environmental justice, and school to prison pipeline movements. While many schools, community organizers, professors, politicians, unions, teachers, parents, youth, social workers, and youth advocates are focusing on curriculum, discipline policies, policing practices, incarceration demographics, and diversity of staff, the authors of this book argue that even if all those issues are addressed, healthy food and living environment are fundamental to the emancipation of youth. This book is for anyone who wants to truly understand the school to prison pipeline as well as those interested in peace, social justice, environmentalism, racial justice, youth advocacy, transformative justice, food, veganism, and economic justice.

Reviews

“This visionary manual brings an antidote to toxicity and captivity. With insightful contributions to end denigration and torture, it highlights the environmental factors necessary to rebuild cellular capacities to live and think in creative harmony with our youth and ourselves. Working against the devastation of personal and social landscapes, movements are grown. We can all learn by reading this important text and so better green our movements and the healthy lives owed to all children.” (Joy James, author of  “Seeking the 'Beloved Community'”)

“Building a social movement for justice requires urgency and patience, direct action and quiet reflection, days of rage as well as periods of generosity and enduring love. We must struggle to reframe every issue, search for root causes, and connect every project and campaign into a shared vision of liberation and a massive insurgency to change the world. In a time of movement-building Poisoning and Imprisoning Youth does all of that—this is a necessary text.” (William Ayers, author of “Fugitive Days: Memoirs of an Antiwar Activist”)

“The great moral question facing any generation concerns what kind of world they shall bequeath to the next generation. Any honest assessment of the world we are passing onto today's children would undoubtedly shame us all. The essays contained in this volume should shame every adult in this country. THIS is how "we the people" who see themselves as members of the greatest nation in the history of the planet treat their children.” (David Gabbard, Associate Professor, College of Education, Boise State University, USA)

“With power and eloquence, the contributors to this important book describe the seldom identified connections between poisoning our youth and imprisoning them. Recognizing the Indigenous precept that social problems are inseparable from ecological ones, this text might be the final wake-up call for all educators.” (Four Arrows, Fielding Graduate University Professor and author of “Teaching Truly, Unlearning the Language of Conquest”)

"This book brings together a wonderfully diverse collection of activists and scholars to focus on the intersectionality of issues involved with the school-to-prison pipeline.  In doing so, the contributors outline the relationship between large-scale, structural problems and the micro-details of lived exploitation and oppression.  Given all that is wrong with the systematic incarceration of youth, this book highlights some keys issues and steps for amelioration.  Go out and get a copy and start changing the world!” (Jason Del Gandio, author of “Rhetoric for Radicals: A Handbook for 21st Century Activists”)

“The authors open up new areas of thought and action by creatively exploring the intersections of food, ecology, education, and criminalization. These activist-scholars not only challenge the existence of silos, they passionately recreate the dialogue for radical social change among today’s youth.” (Rebecca J. Clausen, Associate Professor of Sociology, Fort Lewis College, USA)
