Sample Resolution for National LULAC Week

Each year LULAC councils throughout the United States celebrate the founding of LULAC during LULAC Week which always takes place in February during the week that February 17 falls in. Many councils request their city, state or county to recognize National LULAC Week with a resolution that is presented during a council-sponsored activity. To assist local councils with this effort, the national office is providing the following sample resolution for 2015 National LULAC Week. Please feel free to use this sample resolution as is or with changes that would make it unique to your community.
