Advocacy in California Community Colleges With a Critical Friend


This study begins from my sense of self and place in California community colleges as a Latina graduate student and professional and reveals findings and implications that are discovered through the support of critical friendship. Several critical examinations, research and experiences on issues of language, culture, power dynamics and social capital play an influential role in my promotion of Latino advocacy in colleges with the help of a critical friend. Data analysis on self reflections and critical friendship conversations evolved into how to operate with critical consciousness towards Latino advocacy in post secondary education.
