What Are Some Hispanic Organizations?

Notable organizations advocating for Hispanic civil rights causes include the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, the League of United Latin American Citizens and National Council of La Raza. Organizations advancing Hispanic business interests include the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the National Hispanic Business Association.

Created in 1972, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement promotes participation by Hispanic trade unionists in the broader labor movement, supports economic and social justice for all workers, and promotes cultural diversity at the workplace. Founded in 1968, the National Council of La Raza's goals are to conduct research and policy analysis while advocating for the Hispanic community. The organization looks to provide a Latino perspective in the areas of assets and investments, civil rights and immigration, education, health and employment, and economic status.
