LULAC Iowa

LULAC Iowa is the state organization for the national League of United Latin American Citizens  ( www.LULAC.Org ).  LULAC was founded in 1929, and is the oldest Hispanic civil rights organization in the United States. The organization was founded to empower Hispanics at a time when they were denied basic civil and human rights.

LULAC - Iowa has more than 400 members and ten councils: Council #10 (Davenport); Council #304 (Ft Madison); Council #306 (Des Moines); Council #307 (Central Iowa); Council #308 (Iowa City); Council #309 (West Liberty); Council #310 (Storm Lake); Council #315 (Dubuque); Council #316 (Ames); and, Council #317 (Columbus Junction). There are more than 1,000 LULAC councils in the United States. These local councils hold voter registration drives, provide awareness to residents about civil rights, education and immigration issues, and advocate for Latino-sponsored programs.

We comprise nearly 6 percent of Iowa’s 3 million residents -- more than 178,000 residents. Nationally, Latinos and Hispanics represent 17 percent of the United States’ 318 million residents.   For more information on Latinos in Iowa, please go to the following link -- http://www.iowadatacenter.org/Publications/latinos2014.pdf.
