Mujeres Unidas (MU) is a member organization of the Coalition for Women Students.
Mujeres Unidas represents the interests and issues of Chicanas/Latinas at WSU and coordinates activities and opportunities of interest to multicultural women students. Members contribute to community projects and provide peer support for Chicanas and Latinas. In addition, MU provides women with the opportunity to gain leadership training and experience.
MU used to organized a yearly ELLA Conference (Educated Latinas/Chicanas Leading America). The conference provides opportunities for students to learn about leadership development skills, health issues, identity issues, and career planning. The mission of ELLA is to recognize, foster, and develop the leadership of Latinas/Chicanas in the U.S. As part of the Women of Color Symposium, we invite speakers and facilitators who help us realize our highest potential.
Mujeres Unidas also commits to community projects including visits at elementary schools and the senior center, and is a co-sponsor of speaker programs and Semana de la Raza activities.Each October, MU also sets up Day of the Dead Altars to honor those women who have passed away but left with us a rich legacy of wisdom.
