Fronteras No Mas treats the U.S.-Mexico border as an opportune space in which residents address their common interests in a clean environment, better wages and trade, and respect for human rights. Since NAFTA, more transnational institutions and policies have emerged, facilitating the growth of civil society, such as community-based and nonprofit organizations. Yet cross-border organizing remains a challenging and complex version of local politics: residents live and work within a region of vast economic equalities and markedly different governments. The authors offer a civic blueprint on ways to enhance cooperation, given the continuing interdependence of this North American space at the border.
