10
Creating bridges of knowledge between the Academy and marginalized communitiesConsider knowledge production as an open dialogue. The incarcerated and the non-incarcerated, the researcher and the contributors are learning from each other.
11
Intentionally plan projects with people in the community that will help serve the purposes of those in the community that is affected
12
Respect the people who have a PhD in life as much as those with the academic credentials - acknowledge and fight for their acknoledgement as scholars, as thinkers, as knowledge producers
13
14
Acknowledging the dignity of those in the marginalized community
Need to give full payment and proper course credit to those who are both part of the marginalized community and outside of the traditional demarcations of the Academy
15
Writing on these topics, in part, is about reinstating humanity and rendering justice where it has been denied and so we have a responsibility to write well
16
17
Methodology in pursuing and translating the "truth to power" research agendaWe should use our methods not just to look at the marginalized but to focus on those who create conditions of marginality, having them bear witness to their processes
18
We need to be intentional and bold about packaging our research into legible tools for transformative justice
19
The emotion linked with this work and research is transformative; it can arm people for creating change
20
21
Leveraging our resourcesAlthough the oppression we observe does not need empirical evidence to prove it is there, the empirical evidence is a tool of leverage for activists to point to
22
Consider providing tools to the community to replicate methodology that uncovers the mechanisms of oppressive power
23
Key to expand prison education programs at universities and properly fund them to combat for-profit programs with watered-down curriculum that reifies oppression
