Synopsis: Stoltz, Steve, Richards, Scott, Wilkirson, Hayward
From Booklist: This directory covers 513 civil-justice organizations in 13 southern states, from Virginia to Florida to Texas. The directory covers the spectrum of social activism and provides useful information to readers seeking information about southern grassroots activists and community groups working to change southern life and institutions.
The directory is preceded by "Social Change as a Career," an essay that points out the benefits and opportunities existing for anyone wanting to pursue employment where people "can make a living and not leave their values at home." It answers the questions; Why consider social change as a career and what does it take to be an organizer or someone working for social justice?
The directory section is arranged alphabetically by state and then organization. The organizations include neighborhood associations, civil rights groups, environmental groups, public-interest law firms, labor organizations, women's groups, adult education centers, literacy and health projects, and peace and justice coalitions. A useful feature is the listing of southern offices of major national organizations, such as Greenpeace and the American Civil Liberties Union. For each organization, the following information is provided: address, telephone number, fax number (if available), purpose, publications, funding sources, important dates and events, number of staff, and employment, volunteer, and internship opportunities. The information for each organization may vary. Two indexes follow: one for organizations, the other for subjects. The subject index includes such headings as African American, Domestic Violence, Family, Immigration/ Refugees, Latin America, Violence, and Youth.
Two volumes of the five-volume Encyclopedia of Associations: Regional, State, and Local Organizations cover the states and many of the organizations listed here. But Building a New South is informative, straightforward in presentation, easy to use, and reasonably priced, given the information provided. It is recommended for purchase by all types of libraries, especially those in the region covered.
