L.U.P.E. Outreach

The L.U.P.E. (La Unión del Pueblo Entero) outreach was created in Spring 2010 by UTPA graduate students Hugo Paz (Spanish, Mexican American Studies) and Mary-Ruth Chen (English MFA, Mexican American Studies) through a service learning course on writing for social action taught by Emmy Pérez. They worked with L.U.P.E. because of their interest to work with older migrant farmworkers and hearing their perspective and stories. They held a series of workshops in which the participants read about border crossing experiences and wrote about their own experiences. We look forward to expanding this project through the participation of Cosecha Voices alumni.
