"On July 26th, 1969 the Young Lords officially held it’s first event as an organization of young Puerto Rican revolutionaries. Although the overwhelmingly majority of the young women and men who founded the organization, or subsequently joined, did not understand it at the time, “the rest is history.”
Former members of the NYC branch invite you to commemorate the 40th anniversary. "Visions of Action, Impact and Legacy," is the theme for the event. Other events to follow."
