Family chronicles the 2017 Juggalo March on Washington on September 16, 2017. Over 3,000 Juggalos from across the United States gathered to protest the 2011 FBI National Gang Threat Assessment report that classified them as "a loosely-organized hybrid gang." Family brings together over 100 black and white and color shots from that day.
From the perspective of an outsider and non-Juggalo, Family celebrates the Juggalos as an example of what all subcultures can aspire to. Juggalos are more than ICP superfans–at their core they are a strong and evolving community built on mutual respect and love, unwavering in the face of ostracization and mistreatment.
The voice and spirit of the book is Juggalo, but the perspective is outsider. As such, Family is published with an insert of the original Juggalo call to action, "Rise and Unite, Juggalo Family!"
