Free Breakfast Program!
Richie Pérez Papers, 1918-2006
Leaflet from the Young Lords Party about their free breakfast programs and their meetings about supporting their local Puerto Rican communities. The document details how the Young Lords tried to work with the church for space for their program, but were denied out of being seen as anti-Christian. The Party called for people to come to the church on Sunday to show their support for a free breakfast program.
