Our Story

Dr. Juan Andrade, Jr., a product of the Latino Civil Rights Movement, was hired to teach civics in a public school in Texas. His classroom was primarily composed of Mexican-American children, many of whom were English Language Learners (ELL). In an effort to address the language discrepancy, Dr. Andrade translated basic civic terms for his students. However, teaching Spanish in a non-foreign language classroom violated state law and Dr. Andrade was fired and arrested for his actions. This incident prompted Dr. Andrade to create an institution in which Latinos could empower themselves to improve their community by challenging the status quo.

Established in 1982, mission of the USHLI is to fulfill the promises and principles of democracy by promoting education and leadership development, empowering minorities and similarly disenfranchised groups through civic engagement and research, and by maximizing participation in the electoral process.

Since our inception, USHLI has:


  • Registered 2.3 million new voters
  • Nearby government services
