RUYC Friday April 8th!

University of Oregon MEChA, would like to announce that we will be hosting our 12th annual Raza Unida Youth Conference (RUYC) on Friday, the 8th of April, 2016 at the University of Oregon. RUYC is an all day event where we invite local Latino/a high school students participate in a day filled with Keynotes, workshops, political action, and relationship building. In past years we have hosted just over 500 students, and the multitude of workshops available made the conference an even greater success. This year we hope to continue to provide students with memorable conference that will change their lives and empower them as students of color.
UO MEChA cannot do this on our own and we need people like you to help make this event a success. If you choose to participate as a workshop presenter, please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary preparations. Multiple workshops are also welcomed and encouraged
If you are interested in being a workshop presenter you can find the link below. Gracias!!
