Biography

Mexican-American pioneering community activist and youth developer from Phoenix, Arizona, credited as the "driving force" of the Southside Catholic Youth Center, the forerunner of the Barrio Youth Project. Barrio Youth Project and Chicanos Por La Causa organized the boycott against the Phoenix Union High School District from 9 October to 2 November 1970, which led to systematic wide changes to end the discrimination of Mexican-Americans within the local school system. Arvizu, a member of the parish council of the Historic Sacred Heart Church, was elected to the board of directors of Chicanos Por La Causa, representing barrios east of Central Avenue, and many of the youth he developed went on to be political activists, elected officials, and contributing members to society. He was married to Mariana Ochoa until his death. The couple had four children. He died at age 61 on 2 May 1988 in Phoenix, Arizona.
