This chapter highlights the Solidarity/Solidaridad project—twenty 2-hour Spanish and workers' rights classes and four half-day workshops—which aimed to create a common language and points of connection through which poultry workers could construct coalitions with their coworkers as well as their other community members. Following pedagogical models from popular education, the program's lessons were informal and horizontal in nature, valuing all forms of knowledge, using hands-on participatory activities, as well as relying on participants' interests and strengths to guide the direction of the gatherings. The workers' center piloted the program with ten African American union stewards from Carthage and Forest.
