Teachers are Fighting Back: Latinx Educators and #RedforEd in Historically Red States

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


While much has been noted about the toxic treatment of Latinxs in Arizona, there is a dearth of scholarship that focuses on the role of grassroots organizing and the role that Latinx teachers have in fighting back via their involvement in social movements in historically red states. Drawing from research on Latinx teachers, border thinking (Mignolo, 2000), and #RedforEd research, I address this issue by documenting the leadership role of an activist Latinx educator involved in #RedforEd Arizona. I conclude the article with relevant implications for teaching in historically red states.
