Don't Leave Your Friends Behind is a project consisting of workshops, public presentations, zines and, ultimately, a book geared toward the non-parent radical community about how to be an ally to the parent(s) in their midst.
This project is a collection of some of the best minds out there. We're looking for activists, allies, and radical parents to submit the most kicking stuff to make this the best book ever for getting down to business: let's make a better world WITHOUT Leaving out the mamas (and papas, partners, child-care providers) and children this time!
