Our LULAC Council No. 2862 of Sacramento, California, was formed in 1983 in honor of the late Judge Lorenzo Patiño and is sometimes referred to as the Lorenzo Patiño LULAC Council. He was held in high esteem in the community and The Lorenzo Patiño Hall of Justice, housing the Superior Court of California – Sacramento County, was named in his honor. 

Since Sacramento is the Capital of California, our membership includes governmental professionals, private sector business men and women, educators, retirees and students. In essence a cross section of the community.

We have been involved in many efforts to provide assistance and raise awareness on issues affecting our community. These issues involve education, labor, health and employment.  Also, our Council has been promoting higher education through our scholarship program, working for local charities and promoting the defense of civil liberties in our region. 

Meet the Council Officers:

We are fortunate to have a high level of experienced and professional leaders to guide the Council.  We hope that this will encourage you to seriously consider becoming a member, knowing that your engagement, time and effort will not be in vain.  It will contribute to the continued success of our programs and projects.  Over the next few months we will be gradually introducing the Council Officers on this page.
