MEChA de UCLA believes that as Latinx/Chicanx students, we have a shared responsibility to commit ourselves to promoting and encouraging the self-determination, self-empowerment, and liberation of our communities and all marginalized communities that share our struggle. Through our active political involvement and education, as well as through our collective mobilization, we fight now in order to guide and empower future generations.
We believe that political involvement and education is the avenue for change in our society. This is why MEChA de UCLA continues to work both within the university and within the community by providing support with 5 organization projects and 4 annual events all ran and organized by MEChistxs.
We recognize that MEChA in the past has fostered an organization that has made Black, Indigenous, and Central American people feel unwelcome in spaces created by us. We wish to change this through continued action and accountability from our Mesa, our members, and within the spaces we create.
