Border and Family Working Group (Las Fronterizas) (2002-2010)

Researched the lives and experiences of women and families on the US-Mexican border focusing on families' strategies as they use resources from both sides of the border for their well-being, the ways families participate in economic activities on both sides of the border, and the social and cultural dynamics in which these families live their daily lives and socialize their children across national borders.
