In the Margins Social Justice | Advocacy Book Award Charge

The In the Margins Social Justice/ Advocacy Book Award recognizes the best book that illuminates issues of race, class and incarceration or otherwise highlights the reality of people of color living in the margins of society. The Social Justice/Advocacy Book Award goes to the best book for adults to read in order to increase, deepen, affirm and clarify their understanding of the issues facing poor people or poor children of color in America. Higher consideration is given to a book that teens also read, but teen feedback is not essential to the choosing of this award. All publishers, including self published books are considered equally.
