 By speaking out and holding up signs to create awareness about refugees around the world, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) and Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) members led the Silent Sit Down on Monday, Feb. 12, 2018 in the quad.

    This years Week of Consciousness is all about refugees. The first day was kicked off with the Silent Sit Down to show students the importance of immigration in our own community.

    Several students gathered around to listen to the facts given about immigration while MEChA members held signs with sayings such as “Education not deportation,” and “Stop separating families.” MEChA encouraged people to become aware of the fact that we are around many refugees everyday.

    “We wanted to lead this in hopes of sparking interests in these topics for Morse students since it is common around our area,” said MEChA president Arturo Bustos.

    MEChA felt the need to address this because it is very prevalent in America as well as in our San Diego community.
