#GivingTuesday: The gift of a LUPE membership
By LUPE, December 1, 2015

The gift of membership

Giving Tuesday is a day when we all give back to the organizations that have helped our communities. At LUPE, we are celebrating #GivingTuesday by offering the gift of membership: an opportunity for you to give someone you know a LUPE membership and join 7,000+ others in the Rio Grande Valley.

Our annual membership, which includes a photo ID, provides many benefits and services to low income and colonia residents in the Rio Grande Valley. This includes free GED, English, and Citizenship classes, immigration services, income tax services, advocating for worker's rights, and organizing to improve the living conditions of colonia residents.


More than “just a membership”

Through organizing with LUPE, we have seen the positive and radical changes that our members have experienced. We have seen the implementation of streetlights in colonias, empowered workers standing up for their rights, and women uniting to fight for women's health. But most importantly, through the community our membership has formed, together we have created empowered communities that work to improve their lives. This is a reflection of what our founder Cesar Chavez once said,

“Once Social Change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the person who is not afraid anymore.”

How to participate 

For today, Tuesday, December 1 only, we are offering our annual membership for only $35 to encourage you to participate and give someone you know the gift of joining our community at LUPE. The process is simple: You make your quick payment online, and once we receive it, we will send you a code to redeem the membership at any of our offices.

Don't miss out on giving someone you know this gift that has helped thousands create positive changes in their lives. Help someone join our growing community of 7,000+ members in the Rio Grande Valley!
