MEChA, or Movimento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, which  translates to Chicano Student Movement of Aztlán, is an educational group that supports brown students at Venice. Its meetings are run in room 138 on Thursdays at lunch, sponsored by Ms. Keli Arslancan.  

She describes it as an “organizing space for students that have historical roots of being indigenious and brown.” Co-President Amy Martinez adds that it is not exclusive to the brown/indigenious community and invites everyone to join. When asked about future plans and upcoming events, Martinez mentioned that they are currently focusing on fundraising and getting more people to join MEChA.
