MEChA at the University of Chicago has been actively working in partnership with the newly registered student organization UChicago Coaltion for Immigrant Rights, a student group serving as part of the local, state, and national movement for comprehensive immigration reform.
UChicago Coalition for Immigrant Rights (UCIRR) is a student group meant to educate various communities on the immigrant experience and its history. The group uses this as background to stress the importance for modern day immigration reform with projects carried out in conjunction with partner organizations in Chicago and across the U.S. UCCIR has also initiated local campus projects to push for university support of aid for undocumented students.
