On July 14, 1970, members of the Young Lords occupied Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx—known locally as “the Butcher Shop.” A group of activists barricaded themselves inside the facility, demanding safer and more accessible health care for the community. Their tactics included direct action and occupations that highlighted institutional failures. The dramatic takeover of Lincoln Hospital led to one of the first Patient’s Bill of Rights, changing patients’ relationship with hospitals and doctors nationwide.
