Political Possibilities: Lessons from the Undocumented Youth Movement for Resistance to the Trump Administration
Negrón-Gonzales, Genevieve
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v48 n4 p420-426 Dec 2017
Part-reflection, part-qualitative analysis, the author draws on ten years of qualitative and ethnographic research on undocumented young people in order to make sense of the political possibilities in this moment. I posit there is much to be learned from these undocumented young activists and their struggle as we consider how to respond to the Trump administration. In this article, I use my own background as an activist as an entry point and highlight three lessons from the undocumented youth movement using examples from my ethnographic fieldwork to illustrate these lessons. I then discuss the movement's relevance for possibilities of resistance in the age of Trump.
