The Young Lords

Johanna Fernández

University of North Carolina Press

Immediately following the Garbage Offensive, the Young Lords established an office headquarters in East Harlem, deepened its ties to the welfare rights movement in New York and established a police-watch project in the community. The group also fortified its organizational structure. Two of its Central Committee members Pablo Guzman and Juan Gonzalez drafted a Thirteen-Point Program and Political Platform. The group also developed a rubric for political education, and established an organizational routine for integrating new members and deepening the training of existing ones.
