MEChA, or Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, is a nationwide student formed and led political organization with 400 loosely affiliated chapters with the goal to help all Latinx/Chicanx students in their academic careers and in their greater community outreach initiatives. This includes, but is not limited to, awareness of issues surrounding the Latinx community, on-and-off campus social justice endeavors and presentations, the education of the root causes of said issues, and the overall maintenance of both a revolutionary & evolutionary consciousness, and a “radical ideology”. 

 HI FOLKS! WE AT MECHA DE  SAN PANCHO ARE IN THE  PROCESS OF CHANGING OUR  NAME! WHILE WE APPRECIATE  HISTORY AND THE LEGACY  THAT MECHA HAS BUILT. WE  ARE ALSO AWARE THAT OUR  NAME DOESN'T CURRENTLY  REFLECT THE VALUES OF OUR  ORG  THE CONCEPT OF AZTLAN IS  DATED AND MISGUIDED AS IT  CLAIMS OWNERSHIP OVER A  LAND WHERE INDIGENOUS  PEOPLE ALREADY EXISTED. IT  ERASES THEIR HISTORY OF  COLONIAL STRUGGLE AND  PUSHES THE BELIEF OF LAND  AS PROPERTY RATHER THAN  COMMUNITY.  FOR THIS REASON WE ARE  CHANGING OUR NAME! WE HAVE  SOME IDEAS AND WANT TO  GET FEEDBACK FROM FOLKS  ON THE NAME CHANGE! VOTE  OR REPLY WITH ANY IDEAS
