High School Mathematics Lessons to Explore, Understand, and Respond to Social Injustice
This 2019 book is timely and is well described on the publisher's website: "Empower students to be the change!" and to be agents of change beyond the classroom -- in their communities, states, nations and the world.  There are more than 20 lessons on a wide variety of social issues including environmental injustice; wealth inequality; food insecurity; and gender, LGBTQ, and racial discrimination.   These lessons are aligned with Mathematics Essential Concepts as well as Social Justice Standards and Topics (Identity, Diversity, Justice and Action). 
"Join the teaching math for social justice movement."
