QUESTION: radical glossary

question / pregunta: 

Where can I find a radical glossary? I’m specifically looking for definitions for terms such as “political education.” I’m also looking for the political etymology of the term “multi-multi makeup.” Perhaps Ella Baker and/or SNCC?

QUESTION: timeline of activism in brooklyn 1960-TODAY

question / pregunta: 

Hello! I am looking for social/political histories of 4 neighborhoods in Brooklyn from the 1960s forward; the neighborhoods are Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Kensington and Flatlands. Any information that can help me towards creating activism timelines in these areas is great! Also, I'm looking for information on the 1968 New York Teacher's Strike centered in Brownsville and Ocean Hill, and the Beth-El Hospital Workers Strike, which I believe was in 1962.

This project will eventually be focused on existing vacant lots in these neighborhoods so any tips on/histories of/ information on vacant lots in brooklyn or these specific neighborhoods would be great!

Anyone know of any radical events in July 2011? We scheduled the NYC Anarchist Book Fair for April 9th and found out it was the same weekend as the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair a day after we announced it and would like to reschedule to avoid overlap.

QUESTION: Stop & Frisk Harassment

question / pregunta: 

I am doing research on harassment and groping by police officers in New York City while conducting Stop & Frisks. Specifically those who are aggressive and engage in inappropriate frisking methods, like groping, when dealing with gender non-conforming and trans* subjects. I am looking for data/statistics, police reports, or just first hand accounts of these sorts of interactions. What I've found so far has been extremely sparse. Thank you.

QUESTION: Independent Social Sciences Research

question / pregunta: 

Hi there! I wrote an undergraduate thesis on doulas and childbirth in college. I graduated almost two years ago now, but want to continue my research independently. While in school, I had to submit my research proposal to an Institutional Review Board. I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing both ethically and legally if I continue my studies, but I have no idea where to turn to for an IRB approval without an academic institution at my fingertips. I'm not sure if this is something you all can answer, but do you know of any independent IRB's or information for independent researchers? Thanks so much!
