Background
The Comision Femenil de Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Chapter of the Comision Femenil Mexicana Nacional, was founded in November of 1972. The goals of the CFLA are to direct its efforts to organize women to assume leadership positions within the movement and in the community, to desseminate news and information regarding the Chicana, to promote programs which help assist and promote solutions to Chicana problems and problems confronting Chicano families and to explore ways to establish relationships with other women's organizations and movements.Once established, the Comision provided leadership information and training for many of today's Chicana community leaders. During its time, the Comision published a newsletter, operated two bilingual child-development centers, and founded the Chicana Service Action Center. It also established a scholarship to assist Chicana students.
