I am writing to inform you that as part of my Introduction to Mexican American Studies 265 class at the University of Arizona, my students will be putting out the third issue of El Coraje, a Tucson newspaper from the 1960s, revived two years ago by my students in another MAS course. As a result of budget cutbacks to universities nationwide, we have to rely on donations to do this kind of work. The objective of El Coraje is for students to inform the university and community regarding the vibrant culture of Mexican Americans/Latinas/Latinos in Arizona. Past issues of El Coraje have included the issues that the people of Arizona have been confronting these past few years.
If you can donate, please take the following steps:
We are accepting gifts from $50 to $100 or more, or whatever amount you wish. The estimated budget that needs to be raised for the special projects for this class, which includes a special issue of El Coraje, is $2,000. We hope to reach that through generous contributions like yours. The donation is tax-deductible. Send electronically or by check via mail.
