Join M.E.Ch.A. de UChicago!

M.E.Ch.A. or Movimiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlán is a student organization that promotes social justice, higher education, culture, and history by hosting various events and campaigns.

There is a misconception that to be a Chican@ one must be Mexican-American. A Chican@ is an identity shared by many Latin@s in the US. Yet one does not have to be Chican@ or Latin@ to be a member of M.E.Ch.A. but must have the passion for social justice or have interest in the Chican@ culture!

 Meetings are every Tuesday at 7 PM, at OMSA (5710 Woodlawn) in the shared meeting room.
