Celebrating Legislative Service to the Hispanic Community
The LULAC State of Latino Summit and Legislative Awards Gala highlights critical legislative issues affecting Hispanic Americans and recognizes key leaders who have served the Hispanic community well. At this years’ Conference LULAC will present its policy issues to our council members and will present awards to three distinguished elected officials at our seventeenth gala, which will occur on February 26, 2020 at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. We will also celebrate the 91st anniversary of LULAC, which was formed on February 17, 1929.
During LULAC’s State of Latino Summit and Legislative Awards Gala, we will conduct a policy summit with Members of Congress, their staff and Hispanic leaders on Wednesday to address key policy priorities for 2020. Also on Wednesday day several panels of experts will be discussing issues of key importance to the Hispanic community, such as health care, comprehensive immigration reform, technology, education and civic engagement. 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.
