Who we are...
 
1969 Chicana/Chicano students, educators, and leaders from throughout the country met at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  It was at this gathering that the philosophy of Movimiento Estudiantíl Chicana/o de Aztlán (M.E.Ch.A.) was born and El Plan de Santa Barbara was established.  It was this plan of higher education that opened the doors to student youth and the plan that today Colleges and University's recognized as Ethnic Studies and the operation of its Chicana/o Studies departments.  It is through M.E.Ch.A. that we continue to solidify our place as educated youth and leaders of tomorrow.

"M.E.Ch.A. is committed to ending the cultural tyranny suffered at the hands of institutional and systematic discrimination that holds our Gente captive. We seek an end to oppression and exploitation of the Chicano/Chicana community. "
-Philosophy of M.E.Ch.A.
