Celebrating 90 Years of Service
The State of Latinos Summit and National Legislative Gala hosted by LULAC National will bring together elected officials, thought leaders, researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders from across the US to highlight critical legislative issues affecting the Latino community and recognizes key leaders who have served the community well. At this years’ summit, LULAC will present its policy issues to our council members and will present awards to three distinguished elected officials at our gala, which will occur on February 13, 2019 in Washington, D.C. at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. We will also celebrate the 90th anniversary of LULAC, which was formed on February 17, 1929.
During LULAC’s State of Latinos Summit, we will conduct a policy summit with Members of Congress, their legislative and executive staff and Hispanic leaders on Wednesday to address key policy priorities for 2019. Also on Wednesday several panels of experts will be discussing issues of key importance to the Hispanic community, such as health care, immigration, technology education, and the environment. The luncheon will feature renowned experts that will speak to our policy priorities.

This includes LULAC’s policy and legislative advocacy, as well as its organizing of Hispanic communities through the creation of LULAC councils throughout the United States. Contributions to the legislative gala are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution, but may be deductible as a business expense.
