Coodinator of the Coalition to Save Hostos Community College during the 1975-76 New York City financial crisis. This 9-month, South Bronx-led community struggle began with traditional peaceful civic advocacy and then developed into a civil disobedience movement armed with aggresive militant tactics. The collective nucleus was compossed of students, professors, professionals, community groups, constituency groups, and individials supported by a citywide network. The campaign resulted in the longest takeover of an academic institution in the history of New York City, and emergency legislation that saved the first Spanish-English bilingual college in the history of the United States.
