La Unión del Pueblo Entero (LUPE)

Alton, TX

César Chávez and Dolores Huerta founded LUPE, a community union, rooted in the belief that members of the low-income community have the responsibility and the obligation to organize themselves. Through their association, they begin to advocate and articulate for the issues and factors that impact their lives.

The Praxis Project is honored to share this story about the ways La Union del Pueblo Entero - LUPE is #BuildingPowerforHealth in our latest Communities Building Power for Health video!

LUPE is removing barriers to health care and helping provide vision exams for entire communities using their Mobile Health Clinics through partnerships with local healthcare organizations!
