This three-day event will celebrate the founding of the Young Lords Organization in the city of Chicago in the summer of 1968. The Young Lords became the entryway into the US Civil Rights Movement for a generation of Puerto Ricans on the US mainland. The organization would become integral to a national and transnational movement, and a gateway to political consciousness around Puerto Rican self-determination.
