Alianza and LULAC Team Up to Raise Awareness About Domestic Violence

Alianza is pleased to announce a new partnership with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the oldest and one of the largest Latino civil rights organizations in the country.  We are joining forces in order to expand our public awareness and outreach efforts to Latino communities around the country.

Joint activities between Alianza and LULAC will include:

  • Participating in LULAC's Florida state convention Proyecto La Luz Town Hall Meeting: Shining a Light on Domestic Violence in the Latino Community, which took place on May 28 in Clearwater, Florida. Patricia Castillo, an Alianza Board member served on a panel entitled Domestic Violence: The impact on my family and community/La Violencia Domestica: El impacto sobre mi familia y comunidad. LULAC donated a convention booth where Alianza distributed brochures, reports, and other educational materials.

  • Working jointly to create public awareness messages that will resonate with various sectors of our communities.

  • Helping produce a poster to be widely distributed nationally via LULAC's 600 local chapters.
