The JFDE is hosted by the Institute for Community Justice and Wellbeing (ICJW) at Miami University’s College of Education, Health & Society. In order to enact the mission of the ICJW to cultivate mutually beneficial, ethical, and transformative relationships among  diverse community allies, this journal offers a rigorous exchange of new ideas, pedagogy, curricula, and activism in and around education endeavors.

The JFDE is committed to decolonizing and disrupting oppressive, deficit and racist ideologies by focusing on work that prioritizes  schools, families, communities, scholars, and activists  seeking to establish liberatory and humanized spaces.
