Sustaining Black, Indigenous and Latinx Urban Spaces of Social Justice Activism

No Monument Location

Madelaine Cahuas’s research examines how Black, Indigenous and Latinx communities sustain spaces of social justice activism in gentrifying northern cities. Bridging theories and methodologies across Latinx Studies and Geography, she is innovating the field of Latinx Geographies and deepening understandings of how relationships of care and solidarity are forged in place across social differences. This research carries significant implications for community organizing and equitable policymaking in and beyond the Twin Cities.
