Sueño Mexicano Report Back Event 2017

SF State students went to Mexico in June and July 2017 to live and work in indigenous communities in Chiapas, Oaxaca and Queretaro. The Sueño Mexicano Program is sponsored by the Mexican government in an effort to reach out to 2nd and 3rd generation Mexican Americans and invite them back to Mexico for the summer. Professor Teresa Carrillo recommended students to participate in this program. On November 13, 2017 they presented a report back at SF State that included photos, analysis and reflections on their interactions with Otomi, Zapotec and Lacandona Mayan communities.

Students interested in attending a future Sueño Mexicano Program are encouraged to contact Professor Carrillo at for more info on the application process.
