Note "From Alaska to Florida, millions of immigrants and their supporters took to the streets across the United States to rally for immigrant rights in the spring of 2006. The scope and size of their protests, rallies, and boycotts made these the most significant events of political activism in the United States since the 1960s. This volume offers an analysis of this historic moment. The essays, written by a multidisciplinary group of scholars and grassroots organizers, trace the evolution and legacy of the 2006 protest movement. The contributors cover topics including unions, churches, the media, immigrant organizations, and immigrant politics"--Provided by publisher
