About

Somos una familia

We strive for the success for our gente. Many dream to reach a higher education, many make it, and we help them stay here! At the same time we inform our gente about issues which effect us and aid them with making the correct decisions.

Goals

The goals of MEXA are to promote and recruit students into higher education, retain our cultural identity, preserve and study our history, maintain ties with the Xicano community, and become politically active. Our guiding documents are El Plan de Aztlan, El Plan de Santa Barbara, and the Philosophy of M.E.X.A.

Help out our community

We encourage students to follow their dreams and strive for a higher education by helping out in local schools. Have food drives for needy families as well as volunteer our time to help our community.

Preamble

"As Mexistas we believe that self-determination should be actualized through our culture, history, education, and political involvement. By taking our destiny back into our hands we will rise above the oppression of classism, sexism, homophobia, and racism. This Reclamation process will be guided by humanitarian concerns for all brothers and sisters.

As Xicano students of the California Polytechnic State University we must take responsibility to promote the advancement of nuestra gente through the development of critical consciousness. Thus through outreach efforts we must promote not only higher education, but the liberation of our minds as well. In order to encourage Xicanismo within the community, politicize our Raza, and continue struggle for self-determination of the Xicano people, and move toward the liberation of Aztlán."
