Exploitation and Criminalization at the Margins: The Hidden Toll on Unvalued Lives explores the causes and consequences of discrimination experienced by vulnerable populations in the areas of policing, criminal justice, sex trafficking, intimate partner violence, immigration, (dis)ability, politics, substance abuse, and food insecurity. The contributors--many with firsthand experience--argue that children, women, people of color, immigrants, and numerous "others" are systemically devalued by institutions and authority figures. By indicating that some lives are worth less than others, it becomes possible and even socially acceptable to deny these groups assistance and resources, which in turn increases the risk and harm these marginalized communities face. Centering lived experiences, this work challenges discriminatory assumptions, presenting alternative pathways to equity that emphasize human dignity, compassion, empathy, and collaborative social justice.

Industry Reviews

This book offers an examination of contemporary social justice issues, providing valuable insights into the complex challenges faced by marginalized communities through a lens of empathy and understanding. It delves into topics such as the policing of youth with disabilities, prison environments, the opioid overdose crisis, and the costs of intimate partner violence. It also examines the lived experience of individuals such as those in the criminal legal system, sex trafficking survivors, and undocumented immigrant workers. Exploitation and Criminalization at the Margins: The Hidden Toll on Unvalued Lives presents a thought-provoking and nuanced analysis of the systemic inequities that perpetuate harm and oppression in our society.
