This is Part 1 of a 2-part special edition of Peace and Conflict: The Journal of Peace Psychology, entitled “The Challenge of Being Latina: Personal, Political, and Economic: Social Justice Edition.” In this introduction, we introduce the journal and provide a background on the unique intersection of race, sex, and socioeconomic status in which Latinas inhabit. Further, we explore the impact of the Trump presidency, including discussion of coded racist language, twitter “bluster,” media bias, “The Wall,” the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement office, and the impact this has had on the Latinx people’s opinions about their place in the United States.
