This workbook contains tools for organizers working with immigrant communities to build alliances and find common ground for action with others fighting for economic, social, and racial justice. The "toolbox" contains tips, training materials, and resources based upon a popular education framework. The broad goal is to analyze and transform power structures and power relationships- especially as each relate to teaching, education, and to the learning experience. The book is divided into three sections, each highlighting different tools for popular education around issues of immigration. Section one contains "framing tools," a collection of articles, tips, and activies that will help provide effective facilitation. This section includes a focus on the importance of fostering a multilingual environment, evaluation forms, and activities for facilitators. Section two is composed of eight workshop "modules" developed by BRIDGE. Each module contains activities, exercizes and discussion questions pertaining to the particular subject area of that module. There is also, in every module, a background article relating to the subject, and fact sheets and resource lists for futher information. The eight modules are as follows: 1. Immigration History 101 2. Globalization, Migration, and Workers Rights 3. Introduction to our Multiple Oppressions, Multiple Privileges 4. Migrant Rights are Human Rights 5. Immigrant Rights and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) 6. Immigrant Women's Leadership 7. Finding Common Ground I: The Changing Demographics of Race and Migration 8. Finding Common Ground II: Transforming Conflict in Community Organizing Module chapters contain bullet-point summary facts, followed by a "workshop menu" that tables the exercise and coinciding time estimate for each activity. A handout is included in every module plan. The third and final section contains additional resources such as a glossary of terms, organizational contacts, and a list of resources on immigration and popular education.
