Violence. Drugs. Murder. Poverty. These words flash across headlines to describe the U.S. Mexico border city of Juarez. Left out of the evening news is the lives of the ordinary people who live in the city-those who live amidst the violence, the drugs, the murder, the poverty. We Are Hope is the story of a small group of women living in Juarez who have intentionally come together to empower themselves so they can not only face their reality, but change it.

Told with poignant and emotional photographs, this book invites the reader into the lives of these women. Through the womens words and poetry, we see how despair melts away into action as the women fight for a future filled with dignity and peace. Photographs by Alicia K. Edwards. Translated into Spanish by Sor Aurora Isabel Ramirez. EMMA G. BAILEY, PhD, is Professor of Sociology at Western New Mexico University, and is past-president of the Association for Humanist Sociology-a national sociological association that seeks to use sociology for people, as well as the larger needs of the planet.

She is also an Associate Editor for the journal Humanity and Society. Emmas scholarly research focuses on womens lives and how they seek change. ALICIA K. EDWARDS has been an award-winning professional photographer for over 30 years. Her work has been shown in solo and group shows in Colorado, New Mexico and Minnesota.
