[Letter from John H. Sanders to Henry B. Gonzalez - July 13, 1979]

One of 134 letters in the series: Mario Marcel Salas Papers available on this site.

Description

Letter from John H. Sanders, president of Organizations United for Eastside Development (OUED), to congressman Henry B. Gonzalez. The letter was written as a follow-up, and as a request for help, after Sanders met Gonzalez in Washington D. C. over problems brewing in the San Antonio community. It would seem that the City Manager and members of its staff made concerted efforts to undermine urban development, community centers, and other services that would have been beneficial to San Antonio's marginalized ethnic communities.
