Deborah Meadows grew up in Buffalo, NY in a working class family, attended SUNY, Buffalo, worked in factory and various manual labor, and in 1977 moved west to work in a poverty program after graduation. Deborah Meadows has lived with her lover Howard Stover near Los Angeles, California since 1986. Together they built a small house in the Piute mountains on weekends, and, separately, have worked on various peace and social justice issues. She teaches in the Liberal Studies department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where she has worked as a labor organizer on education equity issues, curates the Poetry and Jazz series for her students, participated in travel exchanges with writers in the campus' Cuba program, and contributed to curriculum design in the campus' interdisciplinary program.
