Professor Stephanie Canizales Awarded American Sociology Association Grant

December 9, 2020

Sociology Professor Stephanie Canizales is a 2020 recipient of the American Sociology Association's Community Action Research Initiative grant award. Canizales' research is focused on migration and immigrant integration, children and youth, inequality, poverty, mobility, and race and ethnicity. She will use the award to interrogate the effects the converging refugee and health crises on legal, educational, health, and social service providers' lives. Canizales has partnered with Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project, a Los Angeles-based organization to more clearly understand the impact of these crises and government responses to them on the work dynamics, practices, attitudes, and overall well-being among service providers working with asylum-seeking Central American children, families, and communities.
