This resource guide was designed by a Detroit-area educator with the goal of guiding educators with two citizenship themes: building a caring community and social justice in a diverse country. The resource includes video, literature guides, discussion starters, activities, and lessons intended to empower youth voice and guide them to a service project of interviewing someone and sharing their story of generosity.

In spite of the diverse roots that make up our country, some immigrants who come for opportunity and refugees who are forced to leave their homes are treated with disrespect or even cruelty. Young people have the opportunity to speak up and raise awareness of the beauty of diversity and value of embracing people of all backgrounds and situations. This toolkit guides youth, educators, group leaders, families, and community groups as they investigate the issue of immigration and refugees and prepare to take action.
The guide below provides activities and discussion questions to explore how we like to be seen and how we show respect for and believe in others. This is a story about protecting and cherishing the uniqueness of each child. It is also the story of a child who was thought to be a girl at birth and was really a boy. His family is loving and supportive of the journey in a way that shows us all how to love and cherish each other's journeys, especially the potentially unfamiliar journey of child who is transgender.
