Centuries ago when our ancestors traveled to this land, they packed their documents, clothes, dishes, cooking utensils, tools and other family items into a baúl.

Our logo is a baúl and it represents the history and treasures of our culture brought by our ancestors.


Our MISSION is to commemorate and celebrate the traditions, history, and heritage of the Latino community. We achieve our mission by:

  • Creating special events and projects that preserve and promote culture.

  • Coordinating El Día de los Niños, an international celebration honoring children on April 30.

  • Conducting ethnographic research and reports on the Latino experience. 

  • Presenting information on the state of Latino families and children.

  • Developing Cultura Kits to help families share their heritage with  their children.
