Instructor: Cecilia Márquez

Over the course of the twentieth-century various Latino/a groups have mobilized their growing power to make demands for social justice and equality.

Some of the groups we will examine include: the Chicano movement, the Young Lords Party, Chicana feminists, Third World Women's Alliance, DREAMers, resistance to Arizona's SB1070, and UndocuQueer. We will look at the history of political organizations, community formation, identity development, and movement ideology.
