Movimiento y Compromiso: 

"50 Years of Challenges, Accomplishments, and the Continuing Quest for Educational Equity"

The last several years, through the next, there are a number of 50-year commemorations of the foundational events that helped launch the historic civil and human rights struggles and movements of the 1960s and 1970s, included among them the Chicano Movement.

There were many legal actions and legislation, strikes (huelgas), civil rights protests, insurrections (levantamientos), mass rallies, and marches (marchas) on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border, too many to list here. Among the most notable could include the Los Angeles Walkouts as well as the numerous Blowouts throughout other parts of the U.S.; the Tlatelolco Massacre in Mexico City; El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan; El Plan de Santa Barbara and the creation of Chicano/a Studies; the Bilingual Education Act (BEA) of Title VII; and the initiation of student and young movement activist groups such as the Mexican American Youth Organization and the United Mexican American Students (later merged as MEChA), the Brown Berets, and La Raza Unida Party. There was also the Chicano Moratorium against the Vietnam War; the founding of the Chicano Press Association, Católicos por La Raza, and the Comisión Femenil Mexicana Nacional; and the notable victories among the National Farm Workers Association (later becoming the UFW). There was La Alianza Federal de Mercedes; organizations such as the Southwest Council of La Raza (later National Council of La Raza and now UnidosUS) and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF); and the retooling of pre-movement organizations like MAPA, LULAC and the GI Forum.  Read more...
