Profiles of Sociology Serving Organizations 

from: Eduardo Bonilla-Silver, ASA President: I am writing to you today in my role as President of the American Sociological Association (ASA) to ask for your help with an ASA project.  We know that sociologists around the country are doing important publicly engaged work, and we want to highlight some of these contributions to raise awareness of the value of sociological expertise.

To that end, we are collecting profiles of “sociology serving organizations.”  We are seeking people who have been actively engaged in pro bono projects with public sector or non-profit organizations for which sociological expertise has been used.

I would be grateful if you would be willing to circulate this call to your members and encourage them to share their relevant experience: We want to ensure that we profile projects from all areas of the country.
