Santa Rosa Junior College MEChA and BSU are proud to announce that registration for the 2015 M.E.Ch.A./BSU conference registration is now open. The conference has now been expanded to educating and promoting parents and community about the importance of higher education and political involvement. Our goal of this conference is to raise awareness about the social and political inequalities facing disadvantaged population as well as to provide students, parents and our community with the resources to efficiently face these issues.
Our theme will be revolving around the quote “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” by Marcus Garvey. We hope that our theme will encourage our students to learn more about the shrouded injustices in the world, and in doing so; become enlightened on the facts and be ready for a social movement. A process, we believe many of us have personally grew from and have become overall stronger individuals in our community.
This conference is completely free! Food and transportation will be provided at no cost. In previous years, the Raza Youth Conference has brought over 500 students to Santa Rosa Junior College. With the growing demand for this conference; this year we have almost doubled the attendance spaces to eight hundred. Once this has been reached you will no longer be able to register. Please sign up promptly as spaces are quickly been taken by visiting our Register tab in the navigation bar right above.
