For the Children?

Erica R. Meiners

University of Minnesota Press

The seventh and final chapter of For the Children analyzes the challenges and possibilities of small-scale initiatives that struggles to build other forms of public safety beyond prisons and policing. Working with the state is not completely off the table for several reasons, as the state is not inherently good, neutral, or bad. Antiprison organizers have pushed back on the carceral state, but the strategies invoked indicate that society has not fully abandoned all facets or forms of democratic governance.
