LULAC Gathers in Milwaukee

 MILWAUKEE – The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)  is hosting its 90th Annual National Convention & Exposition in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from July 10 to 13, 2019. The organization is celebrating its 90th anniversary by uniting and empowering Hispanic Americans – a key voting bloc ahead of 2020 – and debating the issues that impact them the most, including technology, the economy, immigration, civil rights, health, education and the environment. Led by LULAC President Domingo Garcia and CEO Sindy Benavides, the four-day convention will bring together over 20,000 Latino leaders from across the country for seminars and notable events, including a national stage featuring Second Lady of the United States Dr. Jill Biden (2009 – 2017) and a Presidential Town Hall with 2020 candidates: Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT); Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA); Julián Castro, former U.S. Secretary of Housing  and Urban Development; and former Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-TX). The convention will feature numerous press conferences with elected officials, civil rights experts and thought leaders in various fields, and will host over 50 policy workshops, a job fair, a federal training institute, youth and collegiate symposium, the election of LULAC’s national officers, and numerous banquets.
