In a story largely hidden from history, George I. Sánchez also fought the Second World War with activism. Sánchez and allies quietly created a short-lived civil rights group on a shoestring budget to take on discrimination cases in Texas. He also spearheaded his university's efforts at Good Neighborism that were partnered with the Coordinator of Inter- American Affairs (CIAA) in Washington, D.C. and to the GEB. He also gave his time to various government agencies, including the Office of Civilian Defence and the Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC). In late 1943 Sánchez officially took a position with the CIAA to work for Good Neighborism as a highly valued expert.
