The Latino Community Justice Center was formed by Antonio H. Rodriguez, Father Greg Boyle, S.J. and other community activists in 1987. It was established with the mission to provide amnesty and other legal services to the East Los Angeles community in general, and immigrant workers in particular. From their offices on Brooklyn Avenue in East Los Angeles, Antonio H. Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Center, and his staff conducted legal aid clinics for members of the community who had been victims of police misconduct or abuse.
