New directory of orgs for immigrant rights


The Hispanic Research Center at the University of Texas at San Antonio has just published the DIRECTORY OF ORGANIZATIONS FOR IMMIGRANT RIGHTS, 1996. Compiled by Roberto R. Calderon, the first edition of the directory contains over 1,900 citations. A majority of the citations reference Latino organizations and resources. DIRECTORY OF ORGANIZATIONS FOR IMMIGRANT RIGHTS is the most comprehensive (selected) directory of its kind available. It is intended to facilitate communication between and among scholars, policymakers, activists, service providers, educators, students, health practitioners, and so on.

National in scope, the research leading to the directory's publication was in response to the anti- immigrant politics which have swept the country. This directory constitutes one response to the intolerance and discrimination faced by immigrant communities everywhere.

Over one hundred pages of names and addresses will immediately provide access to the major immigrant rights and related organizations in the country. Included, too, are Internet resources such as listserv lists and websites. The directory provides a user-friendly index organized alphabetically by state at the end.



I. Immigrant Rights
A. Organizations
B. Resources
C. Numbers to Call to Report Anti-Immigrant Actions
D. Consular Offices
II. Electronic Mail Network: Listserv Lists & Websites

The directory has been moderately priced in order to make it affordable and widely accessible. Because the vast majority of those in the Latino and related communities are generally unable to access the Internet, printed copies are still the most immediate way of reaching these audiences.
