Abstract:Survey research has traditionally shown that foreign-born Latinos are among the least likely to participate in political activism. Yet during the spring of 2006, up to five million immigrants and their allies took part in a historic national protest wave. Utilizing the case of Fort Myers, FL, this presentation will examine why and how anti-immigrant legislation can motivate unexpected protest participants (e.g. immigrant soccer leagues, nannies, and agricultural workers) to take action and activate pre-existing community resources for the purpose of mass mobilization. Please note that the speaker will be presenting on his overall book manuscriptand below are some links related to the larger book project: “Weapons of the Not So Weak: Immigrant Mass Mobilization in the U.S. South.”http://chriszepeda-millan.weebly.com/uploads/5/8/5/8/5858607/crit_sociol-2016-zepeda-mill%C3%A1n-269-87.pdf”Perceptions of Threat, Demographic Diversity, and the Framing of Illegality: Explaining (Non)Participation in New York’s 2006 Immigrant Protests”http://chriszepeda-millan.weebly.com/uploads/5/8/5/8/5858607/prq-2014-zepeda-milln.pdf
