Latinx Heritage Month/Hispanic Serving Institution Week: Chican@ Identity and Activism in Historical Context

Chican@ Identity and Activism in Historical Context will feature breakdowns of identity within the Latin@ community along with explanations of how they have evolved to present day. In addition to terminology, this presentation will highlight student activism during the Chican@ movement, how it changed over time, and how it fits in the era of social media activism.  Discussions of the newly renamed Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán (MEChA) will also be addressed, along with opportunities for audience participation.
