One Family Under God

Immigration Politics and Progressive Religion in America

Grace Yukich

  • Focuses on progressive religious activists, a group that has often been ignored in favor of focusing on conservative religious activists or secular leftists
  • Focuses on stories of mixed-status immigrant families in danger of being separated through deportation and the complexities surrounding their cases, which challenge simplistic understandings of immigration status
  • Introduces a new theoretical concept-the multi-target social movement-and develops hypotheses about how having multiple targets might shape a movement
