League of United Latin American Citizens: Organization
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the largest and oldest Hispanic Organization in the United States. It was established on February 17, 1929, in Corpus Christi, Texas, largely by Hispanic veterans of World War I who sought to end ethnic discrimination against Latinos in the United States. The goal of LULAC, or the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, the political influence, housing, health, and civil rights of Hispanic people who are United States citizens. LULAC uses nationwide councils and group community organizations to achieve all these goals. LULAC has about 132,000 members in the United States and Puerto Rico.
