Finally, our deepest gratitude to the dozens of community volunteers and leaderswho collected the community surveys as well as to the restaurant worker members of the ROC-Michigan PolicyCommittee who piloted and oered feedback on these exercises.
Tis workshop is grounded in the principles of popular education. We believe that education should be participatory, developcritical thinking and engagement about relations of power, and should support people in organizing to change their lives.

BRIDGE Project Workshop: Building a Race and Immigration Dialogue In the Global Economy (A Popular Education Resource for Immigrant & RefugeeCommunity Organizers).
 What is Popular Education?
Everyone has knowledge
 , and we can all educate each other. Tis understanding results in a shiftfrom the ‘banking education’ model, where knowledge is placed in students’ minds like the lling of an empty bankaccount, to a mutual sharing of knowledge and experience.
Popular education encourages active participation
 , to engage people in dialogues,fun and creative activities, and draw on the strength of our diverse cultures. We learn in many ways—by seeing,hearing, talking, doing, creating, or a combination of these modes.
 The ways in which we feel “safe” in a space depends on our owncircumstances
—our class, our race, gender, sexual orientation, age, immigration status, disability, and manyother variables. As facilitators, we cannot remove these dierences, but we can acknowledge their existence in orderto open a space of more direct dialogue.
Is clear about its agenda.
All education reproduces a set of values, ideologies, and attitudes.Popular education is not neutral, but holds a commitment to liberation from oppression at its ethical core.
Is accessible to all participants
 , and actively works to investigate and challenge ways that createunequal access to participation, such as language barriers, disability, and group dynamics.
Connects our lived experiences to historical, economic,social, andpolitical structures of power.
When our personal experiences are placed in larger contexts andpatterns of power, our personal realities are transformed.
Investigates our multiple identities and experiences of inclusion andexclusion, oppression and privilege.
Popular education is not about building tolerance, butabout building respect, acceptance, equality, and solidarity.
Develops new community leaders
to build movements for social change. Popular educationis a way to develop new leaders, who will in turn, develop other leaders.
Results in action
that challenges oppression, and help develop political spaces that are democraticand equal.
 Afrms the dignity of every human being. All popular education goes through a cycle:
(1) see; (2) judge; (3) act; and (4) celebrate.Popular education is a process, not an event and should be connected to your overall campaigns and leadershipdevelopment.
