Membership in CESA

Building and supporting our membership base is a crucial component of our work to organize a movement around critical ethnic studies. With members of CESA, we hope to develop a critical ethnic studies approach to scholarship, institution building, and activism driven by the spirit of the decolonial, antiracist, and other global liberationist movements that enabled the creation of Ethnic Studies, and which continues to inform its political and intellectual projects.

Membership in CESA is open to activists, students, cultural workers, scholars, educators, media makers, artists, organizers, researchers, community-based organizations, academic institutions, non-profits, and all who supports the movement behind critical ethnic studies.
 

Membership runs on a calendar year basis—from the day you join and expiring the following year on that day. For example, if you join on May 1, 2016, your membership will expire the following year on May 1, 2017. CESA membership consists of three types: Individual, Organizational, and Institutional.


Membership rates are based on a graduate scale according to income, starting at $35.  Rates shown are in U.S. dollars. Payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
