Where it all starts

July 26, 2008

THANK YOU for the article "The '60s, Now" [by Diane Haithman, July 19]. Important as Chavez, Correta, Stokely, etc., were as spokespeople, they did not organize the events that they spoke at. They were organized by groups such as Southern California's Peace Action Council and People's Coalition for Peace and Justice.

Mark Tribe will only inspire a new generation to be involved today by emphasizing people getting involved either in existing grass-roots organizations or forming local entities with friends, neighbors and schoolmates around the issues we all face and then coalescing to form a more powerful union of organizations.

When the people lead, the leaders will emerge and follow.
