League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Constitution (Excerpt)

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Latino immigrants, most from Mexico, faced many problems, including low wages, poor working conditions, discrimination, and violence. They used a range of strategies to address those problems and improve their lives and status. One strategy was forming mutual aid societies, known as mutualistas, which provided migrants and immigrants economic support in times of need, opportunities to socialize, and educational and cultural activities. The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) was founded in 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas, and remains the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the U.S.
