MALCS de Cal State:

MALCS del Cal State LA is part of a national organization (Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social) of Chicanx, Latinx, Native American/Indígenx muxeres, and gender non-conforming academics, students, and activists. Our chapter aims to create a space for consejos, pláticas, femtorship, comadrazgo, and activism in order to support fellow chingonxs on campus.



Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlan (MEChA):

Chicanx/Latinx students must take responsibility to promote Chicanismx at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) and within the community. We do this by politicizing Nuestra Gente with an emphasis on Indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicanx/Latinx people and for the purpose of liberating ourselves and our communities.
