Overview

Fronteras No Mas: Toward Social Justice at the U.S.-Mexico Border / Edition 1

Fronteras No Mas offers a civic blueprint to enhance cooperation at the US-Mexico border and develop a clean environment, better wages and trade, and respect for human rights. Since NAFTA, more transnational institutions and policies have emerged, facilitating the growth of civil society, such as community-based and nonprofit organizations. Yet cross-border organizing remains a challenging and complex version of local politics: residents live and work within a region of vast economic equalities and markedly different governments.
