2021 Latinx Graduation Livestream
Our celebration is grounded in the values and in honor of the Latinx students who walked out of their graduation ceremony in 1973 in response to the lack of cultural relevance and the English-only environment that did not allow for their families to understand. This was as an act of protest, in efforts to continue making space for graduating Chicanx and Latinx students at UCLA. We are proud to be here today, almost half a century later as the biggest student-initiated graduation, hoping to continue honoring our community and their accomplishments.
