The Unity Festival established in early 2008 by THS MEChA in honor of the 10th Anniversary of TUSD Mexican American/Raza Studies Department. It all started as an all day celebration with music, food, as well as to demonstrate the accomplishment that students and teachers have made though Mexican American/Raza Studies. The inspiration for developing The Unity Festival was Consuelo Aguilar, an academic specialist and student mentor within Raza Studies.

It is our goal to continue Consuelo's dream of providing politically conscious spaces for youth through the arts, and we are dedicated to making the Unity Festival a permanent fixture in the Tucson community.
