Excellent recommendations. The Change Agent's a publication that can help any classroom devoted to social justice issues but also to relevant issues that affect our communities whether you call them issues of social justice or not.

> TAP works on all issues of discrimination whether based on race, religion, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or body image.
> TESOL has an interest section called TESOLers for Social Responsibility. This group used to be a caucus of TESOL members and now has recently become an interest section. The following statement comes from their webpage www.tesol.orgCommunities/Interest Sections/Social responsibility:
> The Social Responsibility IS comprises TESOL members who are actively engaged in integrating language teaching with social responsibility, world citizenship, and an awareness of global issues such as peace, human rights, and the environment. The IS aims to promote social responsibility within the TESOL profession and to advance social equity, respect for differences, and multicultural understanding through education.
> Membership in TAP is open. Membership in the Social Responsibility IS of TESOL is limited to people who are members of TESOL. I think these could be models for any adult educator interested in Social Justice issues.

> and the American Counseling Association sent letters to the Arizona Governor stating our objections. Perhaps the AAACE would send a letter from the organization to protest these herendous actions. I am in consort with you Paul. Unless organizations strongly state their objection to this, I'm afraid individual protests are of little impact. I have sent a letter to the Governor, but am not a resident of Arizona so don't expect it to carry much weight.
