ANNOTATION

UFE (United for a Fair Economy) is part of a long-term effort to build a mass grassroots movement against corporate globalization. The staff of UFE feel that while most people in the US would oppose the negative effects of unfair globalized trade such as destruction of the environment and abuse of worker's rights, there lacks a clear understanding of key organizations and agreements such as the WTO and NAFTA leading to a deficiency in activism. To educate the masses for greater grassroots movement against these organizations, UFE has created manuals and workshops such as this one. This manual is the facilitator's guide to leading a two-hour workshop educating people about the unjust effects of globalization and its connected corporate ties. The manual begins with workshop goals, a list of preparatory and prop needs, and an agenda overview. For easy facilitation, the guide includes "optional activities" and "talking points" and "key points" separated from the rest of the text. At the end, facilitators will find "Tips on Dealing with Difficult Audiences" as well as a series of photographs of various workers. The workshop is structured in the following manner: 1. Introduction and Agenda Review 2. What's Driving the Global Economy 3. Who's Writing the Rules 4. Structural Adjustment in the U.S. 5. Next Steps - What Can We Do? 6. Evaluation and Closure
