Guardian Angels’ Inception
Curtis created the Magnificent 13 in May 1977 with the goal of eliminating violence and crime on the New York City Subway. The Magnificent 13 increased in size and was called the Guardian Angels in 1979.
Eighty percent of the people in the group were Hispanic or Black. Before they could be deployed, they needed karate training and to meet the legal conditions for citizen arrest.
The group’s actions elicited a wide range of responses, both favorable and negative. The group was commended by then-Lieutenant Governor Mario Cuomo, who said:
“They are a more moral statement than our city deserves.”
The organization eventually spread to over 130 cities in 13 countries around the world, including Australia, Germany, Canada, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and others.
