About The Chicano Moratorium

The Chicano Moratorium was a collective effort to raise awareness of the Vietnam War as a civil rights issue, one among many affecting the Chicano community. It was an open secret that Mexican-American casualties in Vietnam were coming in disproportionate number to their population -- 20%of the casualties when they comprised 10% of the American population. A series of marches and rallies were held in East Los Angeles beginning in 1969, families with children joining students and activists in the fight for civil rights and to end the war.
