Our Social Justice Topic Series extend and deepen the work of the JustPublics@365 Summits. Following on the Summits, we’ve covered similar topics such as stop and frisk, from punishment to public health; and scholarly communication in the digital era. In each series, we curate original content from scholars, journalists and activists around that subject. Then, we compile those contributions into a free eBook, for use in teaching, research, reporting and activism.
