About impact statement

A revolutionary call to arms wherein the arms are love, art, self-definition, and community care as an alternative to so-called care under carceral capitalism

Praise for impact statement

“Jody Chan’s brilliant and meticulous poems redefine care while situating and amplifying necessary stories, in chorus, at the heart of ‘a public-private continuum’ of confinement. From content statement to index and beyond, this dazzling book, thriven in the aftermath of ‘organized abandonment,’ blooms revolution and possibility. This poetry is reaching for you.” —Cecily Nicholson, author of Harrowings and Wayside Sang
