Party poster provokes reaction in Latin community (2)

(Editor's note: The Tech received this as an open letter to the MIT community.)

We, the students of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and La Union Chicana Por Aztlan (LUChA) at MIT, regret the unfortunate feelings that have arisen due to the Sabor Latino partyoriginally ran as Party. mistake -- pm posters.

Our societies support the idea of having a party to raise funds for charitable organizations which help to improve the conditions of Hispanics. Yet we are not in support of the manner in which this event has been advertised.

We stress that this incident does not reflect our organizations' ideals and hope that it will not affect your relationships with our groups in the future.
