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.
Community Cultural Projects
Mujeres Unidas organizes community projects such as visiting elementary schools and the senior center, and co-sponsors 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.
Members of Mujeres Unidas often organize meetings around cooking and sharing a variety of culturally traditional foods.
