LA RAZA UNIDA PARTY REUNION
July 6 & 7, 2012
It has been more than 40 years since a group of Chicanos stood up and said "Ya basta!"
to a two party system that pretended to offer Chicanos public policy choices. La Raza Unida Party
was a direct political response by those who felt political power was long over due. When La Raza Unida Party
began winning elections, there were those who felt, :"If we don't stop those Mexicans now, no telling what is going to happen."
As the party grew and spread from the rural areas to the cities, more and more candidates joined the effort. At one point, there were candiates running under or with the support of La Raza Unida Party
in at least 10 counties in Texas
