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

Description: Letter from John H. Sanders, president of Organizations United for Eastside Development (OUED), to congressman Henry B. Gonzalez.

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.
