Special thanks to the following individuals and organizations:

Garrett Brown is the godfather of this project. It would never have been completed without his patient advice, tireless support, and relentless networking through the Maquiladora Health and Safety Solidarity Network. Tom Gassert gave generously of his time and expertise, as did Jeong-ok Kong and members of KILSH and SHARPS, and Ted Smith and Mandy Hawes of ICRT; we couldn’t have produced the electronics section without them. Rory O’Neill of Hazards Magazine was a constant fount of information, resources, and networking connections. Apo Leong, Sanjiv Pandita, Omana George, Sally Choi, and others at the Asia Monitor Resource Center have accompanied this book since its start and we are thankful for all their support throughout the years. Jagdish Patel, Noel Colina, Melody Kemp, and Darisman Man were among the many in the Asian Network for the Rights of Occupational and Environmental Victims (ANROEV) who, alongside Julia Quiñones at the Comité Fronterizo de Obreras in Mexico, shared their experience and knowledge with us, reminding us often why we were developing this book. Lynda Yanz, Ana Enriquez, and Kevin Thomas of the Canadian Maquila Solidarity Network provided essential connections and resources. Providing help in a myriad of ways from popular education techniques to hazard mitigation, we appreciate Suzanne Teran, Betty Szudy, Laura Stock, Diane Bush, Valeria Velazquez, Robin Dewey, and others at UC Berkeley’s Labor and Occupational Health Program, Katie Quan of UC Berkeley’s Labor Center, and Linda Delp, Deogracia Cornelio, Sarah Jacobs and others at UCLA’s Labor and Occupational Safety and Health program. Finally, our coworkers at Hesperian, past and present, provided personal and collective support to this project through its many iterations, and to them we give our heartfelt thanks.

A million thanks for their assistance to:
