  • Employing a racialization and race regimes framework as an analytical lens, this research explored how the state-provision of immigrant support services offered by IS-NGOs (immigrant service non-governmental organizations) through various programs, such as English Language Learning/Parenting and Literacy Program (ELL/PLP) may be racializing new im/migrants and reproducing systems of oppression and privilege. Creating a collective and dialogical learning space, using participatory research methodology, the participants spoke to processes of racialization and racism both within and outside the IS-NGO and analyzed and reflected upon experiences as in/voluntary im/migrants. Through this process, participants stimulated critical conversation directed towards IS-NGOs renewal, (re)developed relational capital, and progressed as language and literacy learners.
