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.
The Richmond Region LULAC Council 4614, Founded in 2016, uses these national practices to advocate for the Latin American population in the Richmond Region.
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.
La Misión de la Liga de Ciudadanos Latinoamericanos Unidos (LULAC) es mejorar la situación económica, los logros educativos, la influencia política, vivienda, la salud y los derechos civiles de la población hispana de los Estados Unidos.
