Queer (In)Justice is a searing examination of queer experiences as “suspects,” defendants, prisoners and survivors of crime. This new book from Beacon Press illuminates the many ways queer lives are criminalized, policed, and punished, demonstrating that policing of sex and gender is both integral to racial profiling and race-based policing and an independent function of law enforcement.
Books will be available for cash or check purchase only. Profits from sales of the book will support the Coalition for Community Safety (CCS), a coalition of New York City grassroots, community-based, legal and advocacy organizations working for police accountability in New York.
