Chapter Five addresses the impact of the riots, including the major media spotlight trained on the city. Latinos successfully used the riots as leverage to press for changes in the city, finding allies in state and federal anti-discrimination agencies. This chapter also includes a discussion of the successful voting rights lawsuit brought by the Department of Justice against the city in the late 1990s that greatly increased Latino political power in Lawrence.
