League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)

2016 New/Renew Membership Application


To advance the economic, education attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of the Hispanic population of the United States.

Aims and Purposes:

Based on the spirit of the philosophy of our League and having unequivocal faith in its righteousness, we propose:

  • To use all constitutional means at our disposal to implement with social action the principals set forth in our philosophy;
  • To foster the learning and fluent use of the English language that we may thereby equip ourselves for the fullest enjoyment of our rights and privileges;
  • To constitute the League into a service organization to actively promote and foster suitable measures for the attainment of the highest of our American society, and to establish cooperative relationships with civic and governmental institutions and agencies in the field of public service;
  • To exert our united efforts to uphold the rights guaranteed to every individual by our state and national laws and to assure justice and equal treatment under these laws.

LULAC Philosophy:
  • We believe in the democratic principle of individual political and religious freedom, the right of equality of social and economic opportunity, and in the cooperative endeavor toward the development of an American Society wherein the cultural resources, integrity, and dignity of every individual and group constitute basic assets of the American way of life.
  • We accept that it is not only the privilege, but also the obligation of every member of this organization to uphold and defend the rights and duties vested in every American citizen by the letters and spirit of the Law of the Land.
  • We believe that education is the foundation for our cultural growth and development, and that we are obligated to promote, protect and assume the right of our people to an education; that we must deplore any infringement of this right wherever it may occur and regardless of whom it may affect.
