Dear LULAC Familia,

I just finished interviewing for a story with the Washington Post about changing how the government mentions Latinos in their forms. This is how we are counted and federal funds are spent.

For the first time, we can have a way to check Hispanic or Latino. Also, we can add more details. See the sample form below

As a LULAC member, you can have a big say in what happens next because we are being asked to send in our comments before they make a decision. Please take a moment to submit your comment here:


Your words will positively impact millions of Latinos in the United States and Puerto Rico. Please share this news will family and friends and ask that they send in their comments too. The more, the better.

¡Hasta La Victoria!

Domingo Garcia
LULAC National President
