The records of the Nicaragua Information Center span the decade of its operation, beginning in 1980
through its closure in 1991. They consist primarily of NIC's operational, working files, including
information about other organizations and political events of the decade, and its resource library,
which was available for public use.
Between 1980 and 1991, the Nicaragua Information Center played a leading role in coordinating activities
in support of the Sandinista government and the people of Nicaragua and in opposing the policies of the
United States government, which supported the Contra insurgency. During the 1980s, Nicaragua support
work was a key focus of progressive political activity in the Bay Area and throughout the United States.Excerpted from a background piece by Rick Lewis
