The Young Lords,Young Lords Organization (YLO),Young Lords Party, and later again Young Lords, is a national civil and human rights movement. It was officially transformed from a Chicago turf gang under the leadership of Jose Cha Cha Jimenez on September 23, 1968, exactly 100 years since the Grito de Lares. The group's mission is fighting for neighborhood empowerment and self-determination of Puerto Ricans, Latinx, and colonized ("Third World") people since the late 1960s.
