About the Organization:
United Bronx Parents, Inc., also known as Padres Unidos del Bronx, under the leadership of its dynamic and radical founder, Evelina López Antonetty, organized and trained hundreds and possibly thousands of poor and working-class Puerto Rican and other minority parents to demand bilingual education, improved educational conditions and accountability from their local public schools. United Bronx Parents became the most important organization representing Puerto Rican parents’ interests in the South Bronx from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s. Using a Freirian approach to adult education, they designed a program to teach members of the community to read and understand their world so they could act upon it and transform it. Through their organizing and direct actions, they accrued such a degree of grassroots power that New York City public school districts and administrators willingly acceded to their demands to make schools more responsive to the needs of the minority students they served.
