Mission: LULAC's mission is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States. LULAC's work changes Latino lives and builds Latino communities. We are passionate volunteers, staff and partners, working through a nationwide network of grassroots councils to help Latinos of all generations to help themselves. LULAC programs tackle the most important issues for Latinos, meeting critical needs of the moment and the future. Implemented through councils and education and technology centers around the country, LULAC empowers Latinos with fundamental life skills, such as computer and financial literacy and healthy living. We also strengthen communities with leadership training, scholarships and workshops. LULAC’s 900 grassroots councils are active in 35 states and Puerto Rico. Each council elects its own leadership and sets its own priorities. The local councils also provide guidance, direction and elected leaders to the LULAC national office. This grassroots approach ensures that LULAC reflects the diversity of the Latino American community and shapes its future.
