In 1966, Chicano activist Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales created a community based civil rights organization called the Crusade for Justice. Corky was disillusioned by traditional government agencies that seemed to ignore the discrimination and injustice experienced by Mexican Americans at the time. He argued for self-determination and creating alternatives to traditional educational and political structures. Ernesto Vigil, a member of the Crusade from 1968 to 1981 spoke to Latinopia about the Crusade for Justice and its late leader Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales.
