dc.description.abstract This qualitative study analyzes contemporary social action through the lens of Latino youth activism . A total of 11 people including Latino student demonstrators and non -demonstrators and teachers /administrators all shared their experiences and perspectives concerning the 2006 Latino youth immigration reform walkout that took place at a local high school . It was found that Latino youth secretly coordinated a walkout and executed it . Escorted by police they marched in the streets , recruited other students along the way , attended a rally , and were bused back to campus afterward . Demonstrators were both criticized and praised for their actions by peers and teachers /administrators . While demonstrators were discredited for many reasons as detailed in the text , demonstrators and non -demonstrators felt empowered with a renewed sense of pride after the walkout . Categorized as form of collective behavior , this walkout was deemed significant due to the agency Latino youth exhibited and the attention they brought to the issue . en_US
