Immigrant Integration in Los Angeles
This chapter considers the city and county of Los Angeles, a place where immigrant communities have built their power through social movements that are now reshaping the regional political landscape. Through their participation in broader multi-issue, multiethnic coalitions oriented toward leadership development, community organizing, and pragmatic policy change, these actors have helped press policy makers and secured wins for immigrant communities in policy arenas from labor to education. While Los Angeles may appear to have less-visible institutions for immigrant integration than do other regions, these social movements have increased the political penalties for anti-immigrant rhetoric and actions by integrating with the region's movement for progressive change.
