Paper Session 2: Mapping / Distributive Justice, Thursday 11/7 1:45-3:15pm

Greg Acevedo’s work has focused on the transnational connections and political, economic, and socio-cultural well-being of Puerto Ricans and other Latinx groups in the United States. His scholarly work is interested in tackling policy issues such as poverty and global migration and how they relate to globalization and neoliberalism. His work underscores how macro level issues manifest themselves at the level of community, particularly communities that have experienced long-standing marginalization. These macro level issues have profound implications for the social and economic well-being of Latinx communities and the nature of social work practice.
