M.E.Ch.A. is committed to the empowerment of our gente and the liberation of Aztlan. As MEChistas we believe that selfdetermination can truly be sought through; cultura, historia, education, and political involvement. Through this our people will rise above oppression, sexism, homophobia, and racism.
Thus, as Chicanas and Chicanos we will dedicate ourselves to taking our educational destiny into out own hands through the process of spreading Chicanismo in the spirit of comadrismo, carnalismo and by recognizing that the destiny of the movimiento will be determined be each MEChista accepting responsibility for carrying the movement forward.
In the past, the structure of M.E.Ch.A. allowed any individual wanting to organize a chapter on any particular campus the opportunity to do so. This could occur without prior knowledge of the history and philosophical objectives of M.E.Ch.A. Thus, vast numbers of M.E.Ch.A. chapters were created with dissimilar and contradictory objectives, as well as conflicting philosophies.
