In "Birthing Justice: Women Creating Economic and Social Alternatives," 12 women from movements around the world invite us into their lives, sharing their vision of what the world can and must become, and showing us what they and their community are doing to build that world. From Idla Martines de Souza organizing with the Landless Workers Movement in Brazil, to Emem Okon building peace in middle of a resource war in Nigeria, to Juana Ferrer and Via Campesina turning towards food sovereignty to end gender violence, each of these women have important wisdom and vision to share with us all.

We encourage you to link the book on your website and print excerpts in your publications. We are also excited about doing workshops or presentations on the issues and movements featured in Birthing Justice, and ways that the US public can get involved. If your organization may be interested in collaborating on such efforts, or using Birthing Justice within academic or popular education curricula, contact Deepa Panchang at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505.349.5563.
