Praise for The Revolution Starts at Home: Confronting Intimate Violence Within Activist Communities…


“It’s about goddamn time a book like this was published.”—Make/shift

"Like [This Bridge Called My Back], the editors of The Revolution Starts at Home have provided a landmark resource....For anyone who believes that the personal is deeply political in social justice circles, The Revolution Starts at Home is a must-read."—Ms Magazine Blog

"If transformative justice is now becoming a widespread movement rather than a localized phenomenon (and I believe it is), my best bet is that The Revolution Starts at Home will go down in history as one of the movement’s most important precipitants."—Upping the Anti

"If this book had been published ten years ago, I would have perhaps not felt so isolated, or have felt that just because someone could dedicate themselves to the bettering of society, that they were not capable of turning their internalized anger onto me. I would have not felt so alone."—Persephone Magazine

“A document of more than 10 years of community accountability work, this anthology is bursting with transformative poems and stories, well-developed models, vital guidelines and new questions. By providing resources and excellently written pieces about experiences and strategies, The Revolution Starts at Home offers appealing alternatives for ensuring survivor safety — and hope that more activist communities will name and break patterns of violence.”—Xtra!
