This article is excerpted from a longer research paper and project examining moments amongst the intersections of immigrant rights, gender justice, and social change. This piece is collaboratively crafted by two Ph.D. students, one in Urban Planning and the other in Women’s Studies, as a reflection on their actions with Tod@s Somos Arizona, a grassroots collective. These excerpts emerge from experiences right before a major act of civil disobedience and the ensuing jail time. Both women identify as queer women of color who are also experimenting with a spectrum of queer as an analytic.
