This guide is a compilation of many guides, without which none of this would have been possible. Students for Bhopal would like to thank the Campus Greens, SEAC, Rainforest Action Network, ACLU, Youth Action Network, USAS, the Spin Project, the Ruckus Society, and CampusActivism.org for their own online guides, much of which is used here and credited whenever possible.

"The year 2003 was a special year in the history of the campaign for justice in Bhopal. It was the year when student and youth supporters from at least 30 campuses in the US and India took action against Dow Chemical or in support of the demands of the Bhopal survivors. As we enter the 20th year of the unfolding Bhopal disaster, we can, with your support, convey to Dow Chemical that the fight for justice in Bhopal is getting stronger and will continue till justice is done. We look forward to your continued support and good wishes, and hope that our joint struggle will pave the way for a just world free of the abuse of corporate power."
