Show Summary Details


This chapter gives a bleak view of the possibilities for panethnicity that suggests that, perhaps inevitably, the interests of one or another national-origin group will take precedence over coalition. It is noted that Latinos have a tendency to prefer organizations that are based on their own groups, which makes it very difficult for Latino coalitions to develop and maintain multi-group organizations. This difficulty is due to the fact that Latino identity and organizational experience is single-group oriented. It also discusses the Sanctuary movement, which was not an “ethnic” movement but primarily a religious one.

Keywords: panethnicity; national-origin group; Latinos; organizations; Latino coalitions; multi-group organizations; Latino identity; Sanctuary movement
