National Latino Group Elects New Leader

 

Washington – The League of United Latin American Citizens, the oldest and largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country announces the win of Margaret Moran at the LULAC general assembly and election of officers at the conclusion of the convention with a landslide victory. Margaret campaigned and carried every state and Puerto Rico.

 

“We made history on Saturday,” said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. “I am honored to serve in this role. LULAC is a non-partisan organization that consists of people from all walks of life and perspectives. Our organization must move forward by continuing to recruit and inspire youth and young adults to participate.  We provide them with the resources to become leaders and have many members that are outstanding models and mentors.”

 

Moran has more than three decades working for LULAC’s mission.  2008 to the present she served as the LULAC National Parliamentarian, 2004-2008, National Vice President for Women, 2001-2004, State Director, LNESC-SA Co-Founder, 1999-2001, Deputy State Director,  and Council President #4421 in 1985. She has been involved in the community since 1970.

 

Moran said, “We must unite – that is what LULAC is all about. I want to see unity in this organization, bringing all our talent and leadership together to make a difference. At the end of the day, we are here for a common cause, to promote civil rights.

 

It is the first time a husband and wife both served as national president of the organization and the third woman in 81 years to hold this position. The first woman president was Belen Robles and the second to hold the position was Rosa Rosales.

 

Margaret’s vision includes the following:

  • A 100% expansion of LULAC Councils in every university across the nation with a significant Latino enrollment and supporting their issues.
  • Targeting growth of LULAC in under-represented areas.
  • Support of comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, effective health care reform, the Dream Act, worker’s rights, addressing social justice and human rights issues.
  • Increasing ongoing efforts for Women’s issues.
  • Funding a mentoring program for LULAC youth and young adults.
  • Expanding financial resources and funding for new educational programs.
  • Appointments of regional LULAC leadership training coordinators.
  • Establishing regional summits for grass roots membership participation.
  • Implementation of LULAC’s five-year strategic plan.
  • Engaging members and listening to their ideas.
  • Restoring the LULAC reserve fund.
  • Spearheading an aggressive LULAC building fund.
