Witness the powerful stories of 19 individuals fighting to overcome and transform America’s education and criminal justice systems.

Hailed by The New York Times as a “searing and urgent work that confronts some of the most pressing issues of our time with honesty, intelligence, and compassion,” this strikingly intimate piece presents snapshots from a variety of real people, documenting their intersections with the American dream and the obstacles that work to block them from it. Utilizing verbatim dialogue pulled from more than 250 accounts from students, faculty, prisoners, activists, politicians, and victims’ families, Notes from the Field takes audiences on an emotional journey through the faults and injustices of an American criminal justice system that seems more focused on incarceration over education. Deeply human, profoundly moving, and full of moments of humor, compassion, and resilience, it’s a masterful work that asks you to observe, be present, and join the call for urgent and necessary change.
