Rodolfo 'Corky' Gonzales

Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales (1928 - 2005)

Often considered one of the founders of the Chicano Movement of the 1960s, Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales helped organize Mexican Americans in the fight for equality, including the right to unionize, access to education and voting rights. As an activist, Gonzales founded Crusade for Justice, a civil rights and cultural organization that advocated for the rights of Hispanic Americans.

The Declaration of Independence states that we the people have the right to revolution, the right to overthrow a government that has committed abuses and seeks complete control over the people. This is in order to clean out the corrupted, rotten officials that develop out of any type of capitalistic systems.”
