A small group of undergraduate and graduate students from CUNY will travel to Tlaxcala for a month to engage with and learn about popular social movements and organizing efforts in Mexico. HUITZILIN’s goal is to raise awareness about the reality and struggles of people in Mexico in order to create, share and expand visions of social justice.

In this intensive course students will learn the dynamics of migrations by interacting with civil society organizations, academic institutions and families whose members have migrated. Themes of the course include migration, culture, health, economics, gender, food, performance, trade.

Students must apply to participate and will be evaluated by the following criteria: Spanish: written and spoken ability; seriousness of purpose/interest.
