Here is some background information about this interesting organization: Alianza Hispano-Americana (AHA), founded in Tucson in 1894, was a Mexican American fraternal insurance society organized along Masonic lines into lodges, or logías. The Alianza members promoted civic virtues and acculturation; provided social activities; sickness and death benefits and burial insurance for its members. By 1930, the AHA had spread throughout the southwest and gradually extended to at least nine states in Mexico, expanding its mission to include concerns of civil rights and quality of education for Mexican Americans. In the 1950s, the Alianza won civil liberties cases involving Mexican American children and families who experienced segregated schools, public and community facilities in Tolleson, Winslow, and Miami, Arizona.
