"This is an inspiring account of participatory research with immigrant communities living in precarity. It describes a longstanding partnership with a multilingual, multiethnic Catholic parish and its school community center, providing us with models of research in service of community. Supported by theory, and written with clarity, it sets the gold standard for research that is both committed and ethical."
―Hilary Janks, emeritus professor,Wits University, South Africa.
"The authors invite readers into the heart of a community institution in which people with varied histories build coalitions around shared goals and commitments toward justice. In this game-changing text, lives and relationships are the sites of expansive theory and practice of the 'transnational local' in community-university partnerships."
―Elizabeth Dutro, professor, School of Education, University of Colorado Boulder
" Partnering with Immigrant Communities: Action Through Literacy offers a transparent examination of the multilevel impacts spurred by a 5-year research collaboration. The significance of this book is not only how it unveils the empowering language and literacy practices within immigrant communities; its long-lasting contribution also includes a powerful illustration of intentional ethical engagement through practitioner and participatory research methodologies to support sustainable community-based inquiries toward social and political transformation."
―Tarajean Yazzie-Mintz, senior program officer for Tribal College and University (TCU) Early Childhood Education Initiatives, American Indian College Fund
"Campano, Ghiso, and Welch have written a powerful and humanizing portrait of a longitudinal, culturally sustaining, and ethically collaborative engagement for educational justice and immigrant rights. Partnering with Immigrant Communities draws on the robust traditions of postcolonialism, participatory action research, and sociocultural theory and provides practical examples along with guidelines for reimagining the practice of partnering in community-based research. The Community Literacies Project at St. Thomas Parish is testament to the promise and possibilities when universities and neighborhood partners work in true solidarity for change."
―Ernest Morrell, Macy Professor of Education, Teachers College, Columbia University
