Praise for Advancing Social Justice
"An important book that challenges social justice educators to continually manifest our core values and intentions in our practice—to authentically engage others with humility and compassion knowing we have memberships in both privileged and marginalized groups and the dynamics of oppression we confront today may be ones we unconsciously participate in tomorrow."
—Kathy Obear, founding faculty, Social Justice Training Institute
"In a field where social justice and critical social theory are all too often absent from the discussion, this bold, fresh text offers critical insights and guidance to those grappling with the difficulties of truly engaging in democratic education. Ultimately it reminds us that social justice is not a convenient add-on to student learning. Rather, it is the essence of education."
— Nolan L. Cabrera, assistant professor, Center for the Study of Higher Education, Education Policy Studies & Practice, College of Education, University of Arizona
"With a bit of humility and a huge dose of reality, Davis and Harrison provide the reader with a chance to revisit, rethink, and regroup around the topic of social justice and social justice education. They make the topic more accessible for many to examine and explore without rushing to political correctness."
— Jill Ellen Carnaghi, associate vice chancellor for students, dean of campus life, Washington University in St. Louis
