Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind:
Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice
Movements and Communities
Years in the making, this volume of essays and interviews edited by Baltimore’s very own hip mama, China Martens, author of The Future Generation, and NYC prisoner-justice organizer Victoria Law asks tough questions about what happens to parents when radical and social movements don’t make space for families.
