Latina/o Parent Organizing for Educational Justice: An Ethnographic Account of Community Building and Radical Healing
Nygreen, Kysa
Journal of Latinos and Education, v16 n4 p301-313 2017
This article describes a parent organizing effort with Latina/o immigrant parents in a large, high-poverty, racially and linguistically diverse urban school district. Drawing from ethnographic research and the theoretical framework of "mujerismo," it examines the relational processes of community building and radical healing that occurred in weekly community-based parent workshops. Findings suggest the need for more research that empirically examines the relational, embodied, and pedagogical dimensions of parent organizing work.
