  • Civil rights activism by people of Latin American descent dates back to United States conquest and annexation of northern Mexico in 1848. In response to severe racism and forms of segregation that rivaled the Jim Crow South, when they used labor unions and defense organizations to fight for basic rights. In the late 1960’s these struggles took on new forms as the civil right’s activist organized and made profound impact, especially in Washington state. These struggles still continue on today with immigration laws and racial injustices.
