In the INTRODUCTION, we answer: WHO IS THE RIGHT? Start here for information answers to the following questions:

  • Especially in criminal justice issues, who is the Right?
  • Why study the Right?
  • How does the Right overlap with the State, Liberals, and systems of oppression?

The OVERVIEW offers various articles that propose answers to our central question: WHAT ACCOUNTS FOR THE SUCCESS OF THE MODERN TOUGH ON CRIME MOVEMENT?

  • Why does the criminal justice system continue to expand?
  • Selected articles and abstracts
  • Myths, frames, and tactics the Right uses

The FACT SHEETS section is comprised of various briefing papers and other easy-to-read materials to help you learn or educate others about the current impact of the criminal justice system.

CONSERVATIVE AGENDAS AND CAMPAIGNS profiles nine issues where the Right and/or the State pursue conservative criminal justice goals. This is the bulk of the content for the kit. Each chapter contains:

  • Why does the criminal justice system continue to expand?
  • Selected articles and abstracts
  • Myths, frames, and tactics the Right uses

ORGANIZING ADVICE offers general guidance for activists challenging the current criminal justice system, including advice on framing your activism, language, and general do's and don'ts in dealing with the Right.
