During the 1940s and 1950s, Americans began to participate in the struggles against discrimination and segregation of Mexican Americans and African Americans living in Southern California. This chapter focuses on the San Gabriel/San Bernardino Valley Unity Leagues and the Intercultural Council of Claremont, two organizations formed to remedy discriminatory conditions in Southern California. The Unity Leagues represented a bona fide civil rights movement that fought discrimination and segregation in education, public facilities and housing throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, and the Pomona Valley. The Intercultural Council of Claremont (ICC), on the other hand, created the first multiracial neighborhood in the citrus belt and offered financial support to Mexican Americans for home renovations, higher education, and health care.
