El Movimiento is a march through the changing times of the early 1970s in Pueblo, Colorado. Pueblo was a strategic location in the state and hosted national speakers and conferences. War on Poverty monies from the Johnson administration poured in creating opportunities for changes in education, health, housing. Returning Vietnam veterans raised their voices and provided leadership on the home front at the local colleges and community. These are the stories of the change makers and those who walked the boycott and protest lines in Pueblo, Colorado.
