The Mexican American Movement's Annual Convention of 1947 took place in the Edison Building in Los Angeles on November 23. On this reverse side of the convention pamphlet, someone added the rest of the preliminary program by hand as well as the names of members of the organization's officers and Board of Directors. The Supreme Council of the Mexican-American Movement was created in 1945 to "improve, social, educational, economic and spiritual conditions among Mexican-Americans and Mexican people living in the United States of America" (Articles of Incorporation, 1945). The organization had its roots in the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). See also side 1 (mamms05a.jpg). 10.5 in. x 7.5 in.
