The Mission of the League of United Latin American Citizens is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States. In its history of more than 75 years, LULAC has fought for voting rights, full access to the political process and equal educational opportunity for Hispanic children. LULAC councils across the nation hold voter registration drives and citizenship awareness sessions, sponsor health fairs and tutorial programs, and raise scholarship money for the LULAC National Scholarship Fund.
LULAC's activism has extended to the realm of language and cultural rights as well. In response to an increase in xenophobia and anti-Hispanic sentiment, LULAC councils have held seminars and public symposiums on language and immigration issues, and its officers have spoken out on television and radio against the "English Only" movement to limit the public (and in some cases, private) use of minority languages.
