New York City Human Rights Commission

The New York City Commission on Human Rights (NYCCHR) and the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) have collaborated to create a three part curriculum for adult ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes held at public libraries, community colleges, workforce development agencies, and other venues throughout the New York City area.  The workbooks used to implement the curriculum are published in student and teacher versions, and are titled “The Right to Work: Understanding Immigrant Employment Rights.” 
Follow this link to the NYCCHR web site to download .pdf copies of the Student and Teacher editions of the workbooks.  You can also download excerpts from the companion DVD for video clips incorporated into the lessons.
