Why Become A Member?

Eighty two years ago, a group of Latino leaders formed the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to defend the rights and advance the well being of Hispanic Americans. Today LULAC is the largest and most active membership organization serving the Latino community.

LULAC members are the driving force behind significant advancements and improvements to the quality of life for Hispanics across the country Since LULAC's founding, our members have not wavered in their determination to end discrimination and injustice for Hispanics living in the United States. LULAC has developed national and community-based programs to address the needs of the Hispanic community and to ensure that this nation's workforce obtains the necessary education and skills to keep America productive.

As a LULAC member, you will be part of an organization whose members are making a difference through volunteer programs addressing the needs of the Latino community. You will also be part of a nationwide network of community activists who are protecting our civil rights in the areas of immigration, social services, education, and economic opportunity at the local, state, and national levels.

Today, our membership extends into every state in the Union and Puerto Rico with over 900 councils nationwide. Through our Youth, Young Adult and Adult councils, LULAC offers membership opportunities for all age groups. LULAC also reflects a broad cross-section of Hispanic Americans including Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Central and South Americans. We need your help to continue our legacy of improving the quality of life for all Latinos.

A Powerful Advocate

LULAC is second to none as the leading advocate for issues affecting Hispanic Americans. We have fought numerous injustices over the years and will continue to do so with the help of people like you.

Advocacy-As your government liaison in Washington, we monitor legislation and provide policy makers with the Latino perspective on immigration, affirmative action, business, education, and other issues impacting our community.

Education-LULAC has increased educational opportunities for thousands of deserving young Hispanic students throughout the country. We operate one of the largest Hispanic scholarship programs in the nation and provide academic enrichment programs to elementary, middle, and high school students.

Political Participation-Our members sponsor voter registration drives and citizenship education programs. We have successfully implemented letter writing and lobbying efforts on behalf of key Hispanic issues to legislators at all levels of government.

Service-LULAC members are engaged in a variety of community service projects that achieve progress through a positive approach. From job training to health fairs and from mentoring to business initiatives, LULAC members make a difference by taking charge and getting things done.
