The recent grant awards of the Sociological Initiatives Foundation reveal a familiar list of discriminatory practices and public policy concerns identified by immigrant communities in the U.S.
The research and community organizing projects supported by the foundation this year will investigate a wide range of issues such as wage theft, discrimination, fraud, workplace safety, and the effects of recent anti-immigrant legislation.
Most of the projects link the research process with a grassroots advocacy campaign and typically involve a number of coalition partners in the effort.
The Sociological Initiatives Foundation was established to support research that furthers social change, including language learning and behavior and its intersection with social and policy questions.
