Posted by Communications at 10/4/2017
The Ninth Annual Phoenix Union M.E.Ch.A. Youth Conference for 2017-18 will be hosted by Metro Tech and Linda Abril Educational Academy, October 27. The theme for this year’s conference is Nuestra voz cuenta – in fronteras (No border can silence our voices).
“In the current social and political climate that puts immigration, the border, racism and education issues in media across our nation, M.E.Ch.A. responds with a message of unity, love and self-empowerment,” M.E.Ch.A advisor at Linda Abril Christopher Bates said.
The workshops being planned will feature immigration attorneys, social and cultural awareness activities with regard an emphasis on the Indigenous origins of many of the peoples of the Western Hemisphere.
