LSJ Resource Manual
The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program, and the leaders of the Ford Foundationwho had the vision and courage to create such an innovative (and enormous) program, madepossible the Leadership for Social Justice Institutes and thus this manual. Special thanks to JoanDassin, Executive Director; Mary Zurbuchen, Tricia Callender, Joyce Malombe and Ashok Gurung.While Joyce was director for Africa and the Middle East, she also served as IFP’s liaison to the LSJinitiatives; her dedication, support and direct contributions far exceeded whatever that title mightsuggest. Ashok, as the first liaison, laid the foundation for all that followed. A number of leadersfrom IFP partner institutions – including CIESAS in Mexico and ASF in Thailand – made significantcontributions to several of the institutes upon which the manual is based.The Advocacy Institute was the lead partner for the first several years of the Leadership forSocial Justice Institutes and directly involved through most. Special thanks to David Cohen,Nader Tadros, Kathleen Sheekey, Kay Arndorfer and other institute trainers. They all served asfacilitators for multiple institutes – David and Nader for nearly all; Kay as the lead facilitatorduring the first years. David, a co-founder of the Advocacy Institute, provided particularlyvaluable conceptual and strategic leadership over the entire LSJ period. Many of the ideas andresources in this manual can be directly traced to their contributions.Over 30 IFP Fellows and Alumni were selected to serve as co-facilitators, with roles becomingmore central as the program evolved. We thank them for their ideas and other contributions,many of which are reflected in this manual. We also thank them, other Fellows, and severalmembers of the larger IFP community for many of the photographs that illustrate the manual.SIT colleagues were of course central to the development and implementation of everydimension of the Leadership for Social Justice initiative. We would like to thank the programstaff, particularly Squeak Stone and Bernice Singley, who worked tirelessly before, during andafter the institutes to ensure that all logistical details were covered. Thanks to Chris Watson forhis patience and productivity in coordinating and compiling the various modules, the annotatedbibliography and other elements of the manual development. We especially thank RobertoMugnani, LSJ Manager during all phases of the initiative, for his overall coordination andadministrative leadership of the institutes, the online community and the development of thisresource manual.
