A Jumble of Needs

Rebecca Dolhinow

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter ties together, through a discussion of the social production of colonias as racialized spaces, the previous arguments about the social production of the Mexican working poor on the border, the limits of women’s activism, and the development of colonias. It traces the relationships between the forces at work in the colonias and their roles in the social production of colonia space. The slow growth of social change and resistance in colonias can be attributed to the growing partnership between nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society and the inadvertent outcomes of NGO interventions.

Keywords:   social production, colonias, racialized spaces, Mexican working poor, women’s activism, nongovernmental organizations
