In a series of hardball campaigns for Latino candidates and causes, a brash new alliance of Mexican-American activists is thumbing its nose at political decorum, arousing ethnic anxieties and testing the strength of the region's emerging Latino majority. Newer and smaller than mainstream organizations such as MALDEF, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, this insurgent group has muscled its way to the forefront of Latino activism.
