Mujeres was established in 1995 to the purpose of empowerment of Chicanas within MEChA and those that belong to other women’s groups of color. Mujeres creates a safe space in which women of color are able to communicate with each other on issues that are pertaining to us. We work on Issues that affect us on campus and outside the campus community. We are an organization that helps retain Latinas on campus due to the fact that we create a family.
While we respect our Chicano/Latino culture and honor the nurturing of our families, we are both carriers and breakers of tradition. We recognize that as a community we still have many areas to explore, including the changing relationship between Latino/Chicano men and women. We are here united to address, create and inspire social change on all levels.
During the year, we host Comadre Nights, and participate in Take Back the Night, an annual rally, march and speak out aimed to raise awareness about sexual assualt while supporting survivors. Learn more about Take Back the Night by following TBTN’s page.
