|From April 27-May 5, 1994, nine Chicana/o, Latina/ students, affiliated with El Congreso, went on a ten-day hunger strike. This action generated substantive changes on campus, including more Chicana/o Studies Department faculty, the first ever doctoral program in Chicana/o Studies, and a more racially diverse campus. Indeed, greater funding for recruitment and retention programs from the 1994 hunger strike is one reason why the campus just became a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). This photo includes two of the nine hunger strikers, Naomi Garcia and Edwin Lopez, speaking at a rally outside Campbell Hall (Naomi Garcia collection).
