Graduate Student
Bio: 
Originally from Greenfield, Calif., Maria de Jesus Mora received her BA and MA in Sociology from the UC Merced in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Maria's dissertation research explores immigrant rights campaigns against political and repressive threats in order to better understand how low‐income Latino immigrant communities are able to sustain mobilization over the long‐term at the local level. This research is being carried out in seven cities in the San Joaquin Valley using interview and archival data with funding support from UCMEXUS. She has published her work on immigrant movements and excluded groups with Sociology Compass and the CLACSO Handbook on Latin American Social Movements.
