We encourage you to add us as a friend, follow us as we write about MALCS events and activities.
Our facebook page is currently moderated by an informal network of members and correspondents including ex-oficio chair Rita Urquijo-Ruiz, and Mexican national correspondent Carmen Ponce Melendez.
We currently have two main email lists; the first is the official MALCS list for members only, and the second is for allies and affiliates. If you’d like to subscribe to the lists, please use the link in the sidebar of our home page.
Is my message moderated?
Most (90%?) email to the lists goes through immediately.
If someone submits an email to a list to which they are NOT subscribed OR they send a message from an email address other than the one they used to subscribe, the message has to wait for moderation, and the moderator usually approves or rejects it within a day or so.
Sometimes emails will be rejected if they are sent to multiple addresses in addition to a list; this is our default since these are supposed to be private lists. So you cannot send an email to “email@example.com” AND firstname.lastname@example.org” – again, it will be submitted for moderation and the moderator will approve or reject.
Other Email lists
We have a list titled Madres Profesoras which seeks to provide a supportive queer-friendly forum for Chicanas, Latinas, and women of color parents who are juggling both children and academic careers. To join, please go here or email email@example.com. The group also has a facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/malcs.madres/.
We have two more private mailing lists for the LBTQ Caucus, and the Indigenous Caucus. These lists are not currently in use.
If we set up a list for you, here is a quick guide to managing it: Web tutorial: Managing a MALCS mailing list
Resources for Local Chapters
If your local chapter is active, please contact the webjefa so we can offer you the support of MALCS email, blog, and other technologies. We can set you up with these at no charge on the MALCS server, and you maintain full control over your content. Or if you set up your own blog, please let us know so we can link to it and support your work!
