Tucson Youth Group Hosts Their Own Chicano Studies Classes on Weekends

Organizers from Unidos, a youth group that opposes the Mexican-American studies ban that went in to affect January 1st in Tucson, have started organizing their own weekly ethnic studies classes.
“We’re teaching the traditional curriculum, if a student was in the Mexican American history perspective classes they defaulted to a traditional history class,” Sean Arce told Feet in Two Worlds. Arce is the co-founder and director of the Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican American studies program.
“We want to plant a seed, to keep learning about our history and culture,” Jesus Romero a member of Unidostold Feet in Two Worlds.chr-sm2.jpg
