As the nation’s largest and oldest Hispanic civil rights organization, LULAC has an incredible grassroots presence in Latino neighborhoods, along with extensive community building experience, and knowledge of critical local issues. We believe it is essential that Latino citizens are engaged in the U.S. electoral process. LULAC’s goals are: to promote civic participation and to generate on-going nonpartisan information that will encourage Latinos to vote and to vote on an informed basis. Basic civic participation is voting.
