On behalf of M.E.Ch.A de Santa Rosa and other organizations, we are glad to announce that this year's conference will be held at Santa Rosa Junior College.

We hope that our theme will encourage our youth to learn more about the shrouded injustices in the world, and in doing so; become enlightened on the facts and be ready for a social movement.
Therefore, we are looking to provide our youth and parents with workshops that are educationally or culturally relevant to our theme. Spaces are limited to sign up today! Free lunch & transportation will be provided.
