In June 1985, Diana and her two-week old son and five companions – all of them active in the struggle for Puerto Rican independence – fled L.A. after finding a surveillance device in their car. Her recent memoir explores this history, linking her personal experiences of escaping from the FBI and raising two children while underground with the politics of solidarity and feminism which framed her political choices. Arm the Spirit brings a feminist perspective to a subject typically dominated by heroic, male discourse and offers unique insights into the radical politics and culture of the 1970’s. Since returning to public life in 1995, Diana has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where she has worked extensively with women and transgender prisoners.
