"The Chicano Movement Wants You!"

Title

"The Chicano Movement Wants You!"

Subject

MEChA, Emiliano Zapata, Chicano Movement

Description

Much like the UFW, MECha, a student Chicano organization, utilized the image of Zapata to better relate to the Mexican-American community. This poster plays on the typical image of Uncle Sam with the slogan, "I want you! For the U.S. Army." However, instead, this image calls for Chicana/os to join the Chicano Movement by taking part in the Chicano student organization.
