From 1968 through 1978, Centro Accion Social Autonimo-Hermandad General de Trabajadores (CASA-HGT) functioned as a self help
center and legal service provider for undocumented Mexican workers. It was led by Rudy Lozano, the most important Latino leader
in Chicago, who was assassinated in 1983. Lozano was instrumental in building the Black-Latino coalition that became a leading
force behind the election of Harold Washington as mayor of Chicago in 1983. CASA-HGT also picked up on a lost tradition: the
Primero de Mayo marches (May Day), an event that contributed Pilsen's reputation reputation as the activist neighborhood
of Chicago. CASA-HGT was a Marxist-Leninist / Third World Revolutionary poliitcal organization with a particular emphasis
on the unforseen impacts of capitalist globalization.
