At a time when America has banded together as one, we will show the world that we are strong and united against terrorism.

May God bless all of the U.S. and Coalition military personnel deployed to protect the freedoms we enjoy. God bless the U.S.A.

 LULAC History

The League of United Latin American Citizens ( LULAC ) is the largest, oldest, and one of the most influential organizations representing the Hispanic community. LULAC was formed in 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas when the Corpus Christi chapter of the Order Sons of America, the Order Knights of America of San Antonio, and the League of Latin American Citizens of South Texas merged. Throughout the decades, LULAC has worked to advocate equal opportunity for Hispanics in government, law, education, and business.
