League of United Latin American Citizens

Our History
LULAC's advocacy, programs, and court actions have led to the desegregation of schools, created the historic "Little Schools of the 400" which served as the model for today's Federal Head Start Program, to our counseling and scholarship programs which have impacted 10% of all Latinos in college, to our network of community technology centers, job training programs and more. As our nation's largest and oldest Hispanic membership-based organization, LULAC has and continues to lead our nation's Latino community.  

 A National Network of Staff and Volunteers
LULAC Virginia is part of a non-partisan nationwide organization of committed staff and volunteers who selflessly serve those in need and work to ensure every individual has an equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream and is afforded the protections guaranteed them under the U.S. Constitution.

The Mission of the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.
