The Black and Latinx Student Association (BLSA) was created to assist in voicing the opinions and addressing the needs of the Marymount student body. We are a heritage group composed of students who have recognized some of the problematic issues concerning the underrepresented percentage of the student body. We realize it will take a tremendous amount of devotion and dedication from the Union to see that our needs are met and our problems are resolved. We acknowledge that we must prove our cause is worthy of the entire community. With the result of contributing our time and energy to the community, we hope it will be a good representation of Marymount Manhattan College unto the world.
