New Mexico sadly lost an esteemed community leader and Chicano activist on June 27, 2022. Dr. Jose Armas dedicated his life to community activism and reform. He was a leader in the 1969 landmark case Serna v Portales, the legal precedent for bilingual education programs in place today. Dr. Armas founded De Colores, one of the first Chicano publishing houses in the US. He was an award-winning writer and syndicated columnist. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of friends and family.
