Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA) de Yale, established in 1969, is an organization of Chicanos of different ethnic backgrounds who have come together in pursuit of social justice, community empowerment and cultural awareness.

The organization is composed of students on campus who are politically conscious and sensitive to the issues affecting underrepresented peoples of our community and our nation. We seek to strengthen our ties with the New Haven population through communication and cooperation in order to effectively meet the needs of the community.

MEChA de Yale promotes and supports the pursuit of education as a means to achieve self-empowerment. Our social and political activism is a direct response to the problems that affect the Chicano/Latino population locally, nationally and globally.
