Several MEChA ladies participated in the OLAS Cultural Show performances of 2008.
The Interested Ladies of Lambda Theta Alpha work closely with MEChA to get involved on campus and in the community by organizing various service projects, fund raisers, and most recently through the support of the Uncommon Fund, the first UChicago Cinco de Mayo Celebration.
MEChistas along with other Latino/a organizations on campus attend the annual Latino/a Night hosted at the beginning of fall quarter by OLAS.
MEChA continues its commitment to the labor movement by staying up to date and involved in campus worker issues. In the fall of '07, MEChA and SOUL members organized several worker rights rallies in support of a 4% wage increase for clerical and janitorial staff at the University of Chicago.

MEChistas gathered with interested UChicago students to attend the May Day rally of '08 which focused on immigrant rights.
