Check out the latest issue of The Change Agent - Prisons and Justice?
We are proud to kick off our 20th anniversary year with this rich and inspiring issue on prisons, which includes heartfelt exposés of what it is like to be in prison or to have a family member in prison, thoughtful analyses of everything from addiction to the death penalty to the roots of racial disparities in the criminal justice system. Our contributors show how people have fought for their humanity, lobbied for more contact with loved ones, won the right not to be shackled during labor, become readers and students and advocates while incarcerated, and explored alternatives to incarceration.
The Network for Integrating New Americans project is an OCTAE-funded initiative to support multi-stakeholder networks that focus on the civic, linguistic, and economic integration of immigrants. We are sharing the technical assistance webinars we develop for that project, as we think that the topics – employer engagement, strategies to support ELL access to education and training, etc. – may be of interest to you.

New England Technology Integration Project (TIP)
TIP is a professional development offering focused on building the capacity to purposefully and effectively incorporate technology into instruction. This project runs from late October 2014 through May 2015 and features a facilitated online course, coaching to develop technology-supported lessons/units that address CCR standards, collaboration and peer observation, and practice using technology to share and present work. Participants do not need to be highly experienced with technology, but need to be able to benefit from participation (they need to be able to learn online).
