LULAC opens Texas convention

June 5, 2009 5:32:08 AM PDT
Texas members of the League of United Latin American Citizens celebrated the Hispanic advocacy group's 80th anniversary by renewing a pledge to work together with the NAACP on common causes. The groups have collaborated on state legislation regarding hate crimes, business initiatives and racial profiling. They plan to continue focusing their efforts on minority voting districts and other issues.

The pledge signing Thursday by the state leaders of both groups marked the start of LULAC's annual Texas convention.

LULAC formed in 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas.

During this week's convention, attendees plan to discuss concerns on education, immigration, housing, employment and law enforcement.
