Well just a few updates for what is going on here in Houston for District 18. Last Friday, March 5 we had our first annual Kickball Tournament and were able to have 5 youth councils participate! Bellaire 1063, Elsik 1083, Youth 381, Ortiz Middle and Milby LULAC
Hello once again LULAC Youth! The New Year has brought along tough challenges, yet fun experiences to come with them. In February, National Youth VP for Young Women Nikki Suarez and I represented the youth at the Fourteenth Annual LULAC National Legislative Awards Gala and
Sixth Annual Legislative Conference & Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. We had extensive training in order to visit representatives at Capitol Hill and present our ideas on health and education. As March was ending, San Benito High School, the school I attend, celebrated the birthday of Cesar Chavez by holding an assembly featuring Cesar’s youngest brother which I helped present. I know the students that attended certainly got a stronger sense of the farmworker lifestyle and the impact Cesar Chavez had on our entire community. Also in California, the state is getting ready for their State Convention being held in May. A great amount of youth is expected to attend. Nevertheless, there is never a dull moment in the Far West Region! See you soon!
We have participated in several events such as: The national convention in Albuquerque New Mexico, the Washington Youth Leadership Seminar(WYLS), Education conference in Puerto Rico, volunteering in the Puerto Rico Open and the Save A Gato(SAG) organization. We also cooperated by purchasing the T-shirt of “Dame una Sonrisa” and donating cloths to the Red Cross organization.

Historically, LULAC has focused heavily on education, civil rights, and employment for Hispanics. LULAC councils provide more than a million dollars in scholarships to Hispanic students each year, conduct citizenship and voter registration drives, develop low income housing units, conduct youth leadership training programs, and seek to empower the Hispanic community at the local, state and national level.
As Youth we focus on becoming better leaders in our community to deliver the best of us to this country & our families. It is through LULAC that we have opportunities that many don't have. We help the community throughout the year with several community events, we fundraise to get to our leadership seminars and conventions, but most importantly, we generate connections around the nation and friends.
