About the Author

The Education for Liberation Network is a national coalition of teachers, community activists, researchers, youth and parents who believe a good education should teach people--particularly low-income youth and youth of color--how to understand and challenge the injustices their communities face.

The Critical Resistance Editorial Collective is composed of members of the national organization Critical Resistance, which seeks to build an international movement to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. They believe that basic necessities such as food, shelter, and freedom are what really make our communities secure. As such, their work is part of global struggles against inequality and powerlessness.
