Let me take a quick minute of your time to share TWO BIG WINS for LULAC this week!

August 6, 2022

Saludos to the LULAC Familia and Friends,

Let me take a quick minute of your time to share TWO BIG WINS for LULAC this week!

Tuesday, the federal court in Austin delivered a major victory for millions of Hispanic voters in Texas. The judge struck down SB1111 as illegal and unconstitutional. I testified for six hours in a deposition against SB1111. I will fight to my last breath to make sure my Raza’s right to vote is protected. The court agreed that the state could not use unreasonable restrictions to keep us from voting.

Then Thursday, another huge LULAC victory in a fight that started in 2019. LULAC led several organizations, and we sued Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the Attorney General for taking close to 100,000 names off the voter rolls. Most were Latinos who could vote legally.

LULAC won, and the names were restored to the rolls, but the Texas Secretary of State has refused to reveal how they picked the names they took off for nearly three years. LULAC kept fighting to get the truth.

This week the judge ruled LULAC was correct and ordered the secret process released. This information will show the racial profiling state officials committed. LULAC will decide whether the U.S. Justice Department needs to investigate civil rights violations.

This work is what we do every day across the United States. You are the backbone, the voice, and the power of LULAC. I am proud to serve as your national president and promise to protect LULAC from any threat. I appreciate your support, and together, we will win!

¡Hasta La Victoria!

Domingo García
LULAC National President
