The 2019 Raza Unida Youth Conference Agenda includes information regarding the schedule, workshops, panels and this years guest speakers!
Thank you for showing interest in presenting a workshop for RUYC. The date of the conference will be January 31st, 2019. The theme of the RUYC this year is Alumbrando la Oscuridad (Shining Light on the Shadows) so our focus will be mainly shining a light on Central American migration. Our objective of this conference is to bring awareness to the social issues that have and are currently affecting the Central American communities. Although we encourage a different variety of workshops, we highly encourage workshops on these issues including TPS, Mexican hegemony, and separations of families, etc.
Please join us in our last event of the year where we will have the opportunity to network with faculty and community who have worked with us throughout the school year!
Join us and our GANAS middle school students for our annual Cascarones celebration! The kids and our coordinators have made eggshells filled with confetti to throw around and have a last celebration before the end of the year. We will have pizza and our gift exchange with the GANAS kids, so if you signed up to bring a gift, please remember to bring it! Continue Reading

We hope everyone had a great break! This Wednesday the focus of our meeting is to get familiar with the phrase “Ni de aqui, ni de alla,” a phrase we may often hear during the movement. One of the ways we will do this is by exploring what we mean by ‘Chicanx’ and the importance of the way we speak with each other.
We will also be going over who MEChA is and going over some awesome topics we will discuss over the term.
Cant wait to see you all there!
