Our Three Pillars

Education
Here at CMSA, we have meetings that educate our members about current politics in the local, state, and national level. This includes teaching them about state legislation, senate bills, political candidates, and new laws or policies. ​We also inform our members about events and opportunities to assist minority & marginalized communities who need support. These events includes Know Your Rights Workshops, Citizenship Classes, teaching people English, and more.
Safe Space
We offer an inclusive environment where anybody regardless of background is welcomed to come and learn about our organization. CMSA has open arms and invites everyone to join our family in Aggieland.
Activism
As minorities we must take action to implement social change. The society that we live in is in needs\ improvement and change. CMSA will not give up until equality is ensured in our communities and our nation.
