Philanthropiece enjoys championing local efforts to uplift community diversity, resiliency, and healing; we proudly elevate change-makers and support progressive movements; celebrating the UMAS 50th Anniversary wraps around all of these values under one roof for one night, please come join the celebration with us! The CU University Libraries are proud to host a panel exhibit celebrating 50 years of UMAS y MEXA de CU Boulder in the Ventana Gallery on the 3rd floor of Norlin Library. The UMAS exhibit, open to the public in Norlin Library’s Ventana Gallery, is a student-led and student-developed exhibit. Students chose the content and collaborated with the Libraries’ graphic designer, Andrew Violet, on design and production. The event will feature short talks by Megan K. Friedel, Head of Archives, who supervised the UMAS y MEXA students’ exhibit projects, and Magnolia Landa-Posas of CU Engage at the School of Education, who will discuss what UMAS y MEXA and its history mean today to the CU Boulder campus.
UMAS is a student organization that empowers Latinx through education and activism. The exhibit is arranged into four themes: Solidarity, Education, Activism, and Expression. In Spanish these slogans refer to the founding values of UMAS: El Pueblo Unido Jamas Sera Vencido, (A House United Shall Never Be Divided) La Educación es Nuestra Fuerza (Education Is Our Strength) Activismo (Activism) and La Voz de la Gente (Voice of the People).
