From 1978 to 1990, young activists from the African American, Asian American, and Chicano movements, along with progressive whites, worked together in the League of Revolutionary Struggle (M-L). The LRS stood out in the left movement of the time for several reasons. First, the membership was primarily people of color. Second, women occupied a majority of key leadership positions. Third, LRS members and friends were deeply rooted in their communities. They were involved in struggles for immigrant rights and decent affordable housing, in labor organizing, in the student movement, in international support work, in the women's movement.
