Welcome to the 2016 LULAC Florida State Convention
LULAC is the nation’s oldest Hispanic civil rights organization and also the largest in terms of volunteer- membership. LULAC’s goal is to foster an environment that provides opportunities for improving the quality of life for Hispanic Americans. LULAC’s focus is on issues such as: educational opportunities, immigration reform, civil rights, and Puerto Rico’s representation.
Our 2015-16 fiscal year was a banner year for Florida LULAC and its advocacy initiatives. Several of our Florida state board went to Washington DC to advocate congressional representatives in October of 2015, and again in January of 2016. Our Florida members successfully advocated on bills that would have had an adverse impact on Florida Hispanic citizens.
LULAC Florida relies solely on volunteers. I urge you to join our efforts by getting involved in community service and advocacy. If you want to make a difference in your community, contact us at www.lulacflorida.com.
Our theme for this year is building and empowering leaders. We would like to thank Tampa LULAC for hosting the convention this year. We look forward to your participation at our state conference, and hope you enjoy your stay in Tampa.

LULAC Florida State Director
