About La Unión Del Pueblo Entero
La Unión del Pueblo Entero was founded by labor rights activist César Chávez. LUPE builds stronger, healthier communities to enable colonia residents to use the power of civic engagement for social change. We provide leadership development for community leaders to mobilize residents and offer social services to help families address their immediate needs as they work for social change. Over the last several years, LUPE has created a membership base of 7,000+ people in Rio Grande Valley. Thousands of these members have been assisted by LUPE’s social service providers and staff attorney with income tax and immigration related services. Additionally, LUPE organizers have trained over 250 colonia leaders who have organized house meetings to engage neighbor families on issues that affect their communities, developed advocacy campaigns, and articulated these issues to the media. LUPE organizers actively work with colonia residents to develop campaigns for immigrant and neighborhood rights.
