Arizona: A Reflection and Conversation on the Migrant Rights Movement, 2015
Téllez examines recent forms of activism and organizing that women have innovated in Arizona on the front lines of some of the most vicious anti-immigrant discourse and policing practices witnessed in decades. Through testimonios with activists, Téllez chronicles the initial forms of activism that emerged in the context of hatred, xenophobia, and violence and describes how these were transformed into longer-term strategies of community organizing that mobilized Chicana/o, Mexican, and indigenous communities throughout Arizona.
