In 2006, The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) approved the formation of the LULAC Dallas Rainbow Council in Dallas Texas. In 2021 the Lubbock Chapter #263 approved the formation of the first LGBTQIA+ LULAC Chapter in West Texas and became chapter #22423. LULAC has a mission to advocate for the well-being of the Latinx community and to support our Latinx LGBTQIA+ youth.
LULAC #22423 also known as “The Power of 3: Unity, Community, and Equality”, will be hosting their first annual Trunk -O-Treat on October 30th, 2021 at 6:30 pm in the St. Johns Methodist Church parking located at 1501 University Ave.
This event is designed to foster community involvement and provide a safe place for families of all backgrounds, especially the LGTBQIA+ youth in the Lubbock area, to gather and go trick-or-treating in a place where they will be free to identify as themselves without judgment or prejudice and be accepted by organizations and families that support and care for them.
LULAC# 22423 is looking for Community Leaders, companies, organizations, non-profits, and even families to join in our mission and set up a vehicle at the Trunk-O-Treat and pass out candy to all the amazing Trick-or-Treaters that will be visiting us on October 30th.
Participants that are interested in joining this event may e-mail Topher Covarrubio @ LULACPRIDE806@yahoo.com. Each organization must be registered to participate in the event. There is not a cost to join, but participants must have their organization registered with LULAC #22423 in order to participate.
LULAC #22423 is currently looking for new members that would like to help the Latinx and LGBTQIA+ community work towards acceptance and involvement in the Lubbock community, may visit their Facebook page for meeting information.
