The East Coast Chicana/o Student Forum affirms the importance of La Raza, the greatness of our heritage, our history, our language, our traditions, our culture, and the countless contributions made to humanity by our gente. We have demonstrated, proven, and again affirm our loyalty to La Causa and to our cultural traditions.
We accept the framework within which we may establish and operate our own independent organizations in pursuit of justice, equality, and redress of grievances and inequities. The forum pledges to support all our courageous people organizing in the fields, in the barrios, in the work force, and in the schools. We commit ourselves to the organizing and leadership of La Raza to nuestras familias, to nuestras comunidades, and to the struggle for equality of all people.
