National Council of La Raza Changes Name to UnidosUS

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the largest Latino advocacy organization, is changing its name to UnidosUS.

The change was announced by NCLR during its annual conference in Arizona, where it traces its roots. NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguía was expected to officially announce the change in a speech scheduled for Monday night, July 10, 2017.

Unidos, which translates to united, is meant to show unity among Latino communities but also help NCLR transform into a group that joins all communities, according to Murguía. The Spanish word with US attached was intended to make sure "people understand we are an American institution."
