Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan

CU Denver Chapter


United Mexican-American Students Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (UMAS-MEChA) consists of students who have dedicated their lives and skills to the advancement of the principles of human rights and to the needs of the Chicano community. UMAS-MEChA is able to unite in one common purpose: a demand for respect for human dignity and true equality and justice for all members of this society. They struggle to learn and learn to struggle - not for individual gain but to serve our Chicano/Chicana people.

Our organization strongly believes in the right to a fair and equal education. Education, we believe, is the key to improving the social and political situation of the Chicano/Chicana community.

We represent the new generation of Chicano/Chicana students who have the responsibility of upholding the tradition and history of UMAS-MEChA and its people, and the Raza community. In our hands, it is a tool for liberation, justice, equality, and self-determination for all Chicanos and all students.

We believe that learning and sharing in different cultures is a way to foster a sense of community amongst diverse individuals and nurture an environment of tolerance.

Our weekly meetings are on Wednesday from 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Tivoli Club Hub Office D.
