National Council of La Raza (NCLR)


"The term “La Raza” — “The Race” — became problematic for the National Council of La Raza as it grew from its roots in the Chicano movement of the late 1960s. . ."

- Jerry Kammer, Senior Research Fellow

". . .if the National Council of La Raza wants the benefits of a more moderate-sounding name, it should adopt one. Initials, after all, stand for something. A name is an expression of identity and often of purpose. Initials should not be used as camouflage."

- Jerry Kammer, Senior Research Fellow
