LUPE’s strength is found in our 8,000+ membership base from which leaders and volunteers are transforming their communities. Members pay membership fees on an annual basis. These fees pay for the services and leadership development practices of each LUPE Office. LUPE engages its membership in devising and conducting campaigns to achieve the mission of the organization. In order to have a positive impact on the lives of immigrant and Latinx families, LUPE members develop into community leaders and are empowered to impact change.
