|Organizer/Author||M.E.Ch.A de SRJC|
M.E.Ch.A. de Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) is proud to announce that the 2016 Youth Conference will be organized by a group of student organizations that include: M.E.Ch.A (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanista de Aztlan) de SRJC, Black Student Union of SRJC and Sonoma State University (SSU), SRJC Undocumented Student Union, SRJC Inter-Tribal Council, SRJC Puente, Achieving Academic Success (LEA) and Raizes Collectivas. With the successful collaboration last year between M.E.Ch.A. de SRJC and SRJC Black Student Union, this year the organizations agreed that it was necessary to incorporate additional student organizations in order to reach out to a larger population of underrepresented students. The 2016 Youth Conference will continue to expand to educating and promoting parents and community about the importance of higher education and political involvement.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Apr 27th, 2016 6:05 PM
Our theme for the 2016 Youth Conference revolves around the quote “They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know we were seeds.” We hope that our theme will encourage students to learn more about their history and culture, understanding how to decolonize their minds, while viewing their education as a practice of liberation and service for their families and communities. The conference will also raise awareness about the social and political inequalities facing disadvantaged populations, as well as to provide students, parents and our community with the resources to efficiently face these issues and be ready for a social movement.
