Public Sociology

There are several community projects I have ongoing involvement in. 

First, I am engaged in community work in women’s prisons. I co-founded and facilitate with an organization called Webs of SupportThe prisoner-led group is by and for survivors of trauma and violence. 

Second, I co-edit a prisoner publication called unstoppable! publication by and for prisoners who identify as women, trans, or gender-nonconforming. 

Additionally, in an effort to make my scholarship more accessible to a wider audience, I have created several self-published zines containing my writings (and in some cases, my co-authored writings), listed below. I’ve created 2 versions of each zine: one that is readable online and one that can be printed and distributed widely. If you click on the “printable zine version,” make sure to print double-sided and flip to the “short-edge” (if that option is available) and then fold in half!
