The national anti-immigrant and anti-Chicana/o Latina/o legislation speaks to the continued fear of difference within the United States. Difference across race, genders, sexualities, abilities, religions, national origins, languages, and other social identities continues to draw attacks against our communities. The institute’s theme is inspired by organizations such as “Todos Somos Arizona,” a solidarity group that seeks to counter Arizona’s oppressive legislation.
MALCS is a national organization of Chicanas/Latinas and Native American women working in academia and in community settings with a common goal: to work toward the support, education and dissemination of Chicana/Latina and Native American women’s issues. This year’s Summer Institute will be hosted at the University of California Santa Barbara, July 18-21, 2012.
