Herbalife Investigation Divides Latinos, LULAC Leaders
 At least nine presidents of councils wrote letters to legislators assuring they do not share the organization 's stance against the natural products company 
By Antonieta Cádiz
La Opinión (May 9, 2014)
translated from Spanish by NiLP 
The campaign against Herbalife, led by the well-known organization, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), is resulting in internal fractures in this, the oldest and largest civil rights Hispanic organization in America.
At least nine presidents of LULAC councils wrote letters to legislators in which they say they do not feel represented by their leadership's position on the company.
LULAC was created in the early '30s to combat discrimination faced by Hispanics in the United States, consolidating smaller civil rights advocacy groups that existed at the time. Since then, the organization has grown and has its national offices and councils in several states.
The letters, to which La Opinión had access, were sent yesterday to the US Congressmen who represent districts where LULAC councils are located in states like Texas and California.
They make it clear that "attacks by the national leadership of LULAC do not represent the views of all members of the organization, councils and districts," the letter from Kathy Jurado, president of Long Beach -San Pedro Council 3246, specifies.
"We dot yet know why California LULAC was not officially informed that there was a problem and that they needed our support," she added.
This year, LULAC, along with other organizations such as the Hispanic Federation, National Consumers, Consumer Action and Consumer Network, asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate Herbalife's cheating of the Hispanic community associated with its business model.
In March, the FTC announced it would open an investigation against Herbalife.
