Praise

The Care Manifesto is a radiant invitation to transform our economy and society, a roadmap for how we can emerge from overlapping crises and weave a new social fabric. The ethic of universal care is an antidote to the spiralling carelessness that our current system shows towards people and the planet. The authors understand that care is not a commodity: it’s a practice, a core value, and an organizing principle on which a new politics can and must be built.”
—Naomi Klein, author of On Fire

“Finally a ‘care manifesto’ that shows how powerful caring can and should be in changing global practices and institutions and in transforming our world! No longer a private concern nor the exclusive preoccupation of moralists speculating about the essential feminine, care is given by this text in the form of a bracing critique of neo-liberal profit-making. The Care Manifesto charts a path toward the transformation of kinship, the gendered division of labor, ecological activism, and secures the principles of interdependence that should guide progressive transnational institutions.”
—Judith Butler, author of The Force of Nonviolence

“Why do we live in a world that rewards the uncaring, the care-free and the care-less? How long can we tolerate such a state? Not long according to this vital, urgent and compelling book about why radical change is needed. The manifesto not only critiques uncaring governments and corporations, but also offers an alternative. There is one and we desperately need it.”
—Bev Skeggs, Distinguished Professor, Lancaster Univeristy

“This manifesto is a call to action for global progressives. The Care Collective shows the ‘systemic carelessness’ of existing political, economic, and kinship orders are broken both for humans and the planet. They demonstrate that capacious care offers a practical and already existing starting point for change on all levels.”
—Joan Tronto, author of Caring Democracy

“An inspiring and revolutionary call for an economy and society based on caring for the earth and each other … rings with both freshness and familiarity, moral clarity and political necessity. It’s wonderful.”
—Avi Lewis, The Leap

“Rais[es] fundamental questions about care and caring in the contemporary context.”
Morning Star

“Robustly analytical … the current crisis has forced the always urgent issue of care into the spotlight.”
Observer

“The book of 2020 because not only does it find a way out of the crisis but it lays the basis for something better in its place.”
Labour Hub

“The ideas in the book are laudable and important.”
Emily Kenway, Red Pepper

“In showing us the power of mutual aid, coalition-building and solidarity, this book aids us in ensuring our activism is enacted through our daily actions within our communities and that whilst change starts within us, it doesn’t end there.”
—Adele Walton, gal-dem
