NACCS - TEJAS FOCO // 02.18 -20.16//
Naccs Tejas Foco is a Texas regional NACCS organization that represtents the National Association of Chicano and Chicana Studies. NACCS encourages research, which is critical and reaffirms the political actualization of Chicanas/os.

NACCS promotes research that directly confronts structures of inequality based on class, race and gender privileges in U.S. society.

It serves as a forum promoting communication and exchange of ideas among Chicana and Chicano scholars across all geographical and disciplinary boundaries. NACCS promotes and enhances the opportunities and participation of Chicanas and Chicanos at all levels and positions of institutions of higher learning. As such NACCS has become an effective advocate for both students and scholars.
In terms of the NACCS Tejas Foco - it includes members that represent all of Texas. Tejas Foco stages an annual regional conference, which attracts 300 to 500 Texas participants to listen to over forty presenters on a variety of topics that affect the Texas Chicana/o community.
