LUCA's Mission

Those Who Made It Happen

Chairman Welcome


We began as a movement within Poder Latino, a Texas based 501c4 non-profit organization. We are currently operating as a DBA of Poder Latino.

LUCA means "Bringer of Light... Our mission is to shine God's Light upon a dark world. We will do this by sharing scripture, and pursuing conservative values in schools, government, communities, and families through our actions promoting unity, education and faith.

LUCA is an action organization and our purpose is to educate and assist communities and families whenever our presence will make a difference. We are helpers when help is otherwise not available and we shine a light to celebrate great elected servants and teachers or we shine a light to expose those same servants when they exploit their roles to compromise freedoms.

LUCA means “bringer of light,” and the word Lucas (hence Luke) is derived from it. In the Bible, the prophet Luke, a physician, is one of the four authors of the gospels. Catholics consider Luke to be the patron saint of doctors, artists, and creatives. Hence the origin of the group name, the acronym being Latinos United for Conservative Action. John 8:12 King James Version (KJV) 12 Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the Light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of life. In a world full of darkness we shine the light... We expose corruption wherever we find it We expose deceit from politicians We expose those who seek to destroy us We expose propaganda We expose those who wish to exploit children We expose unfairness and bad policy We illuminate the path to salvation through Jesus Christ We illuminate the roles of Godly men and women in their service to our country We illuminate the need to protect the innocent We illuminate the patriots and their bravery We are not afraid to shine, because our strength comes from God.

LUCA is an action organization at a time when this is sorely needed. We get in the weeds of issues and are unafraid to be a sounding board. We do so with character, integrity and class. LUCA is bold in our actions when boldness is needed, we are unwavering in our faith when faith is challenged and we are knowledgeable in our goals for those we serve in their quest to find solid God-fearing elected officials, schools and enacted policies which could infringe on the freedoms we enjoy. We are unafraid to use every form of media and communication needed to protect our communities while strongly supporting those in office who adhere to the values that strengthen our communities.

We believe in our constitutionally protected freedoms including freedom of speech, religion, due process and the right to bear arms. We believe that government should stop interfering in how parents raise their children unless actual abuse is taking place. We stand firmly against the gender transitioning of children. We stand firmly against men who identify as women, competing against women in sports or using women’s restroom’s, changing rooms or other facilities where women should enjoy their privacy. We stand against the sexual exploitation and sexual grooming of children either through clearly pornographic materials in their reading materials or through adults parading around them in explicit attire better suited for private adult events. The innocence of children must be preserved. We are for completing the wall and therefore protecting our borders. We strongly support legal immigrants but we believe allowing un-vetted illegal immigrants to flood through our borders is careless and poses dangers to the citizens of our country. We are for ending human trafficking. This is slavery and we strongly believe that the policies of our country should make it a high crime for the slavery of women and children, in particular, sex slavery. We are for voter ID, the very idea that as minorities we are incapable of obtaining ID is in and of itself is very condescending. We also believe in order to have fair elections we must do so in public in the time frame allowed unless there is extenuating circumstances and we are definitely against ballot harvesting. We are against forced vaccines, forced mask mandates and business closures.

WE ARE NOT JUST A GROUP FOR LATINOS - We welcome people from all walks of life, all races and ages. The word UNITED is a huge part of who we are and we take pride in it. We are all God’s children and together we can learn from one another and accomplish far greater things than if we are apart. If you believe in freedoms and wish to support the conservative values that we do, we welcome you regardless of race, age, color, religion, national origin.

No. LUCA has origins in Texas and therefore we are very strong here, but we have extended into several other states already, and have a very firm foundation in states such as New Mexico, California, Arizona and Florida, we are currently trying to spread into other states as well. If you are interested in starting a LUCA chapter in your state or community, please reach out to us, we would like to hear from you.

You can email us through a link on this page or click one of the social media links to our pages and message us there. We look forward to hearing from you.


At LUCA our vision is to lead our communities in preserving the God-given and constitutionally protected freedoms that have been fading away. We are the voice that supports parents who feel helpless to fight and children who are being groomed, trafficked and exploited. LUCA will help the community understand their rights and identify representatives who will defend those rights until freedom has been restored.


LUCA’s values align with faith in the Holy Trinity, and the family values passed down through generations of our families and due process and the U.S. Constitution. We love and respect one another as children of God, but we do not compromise our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.


The Goal of LUCA is to plant seeds for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to be a strong presence through our actions for those who cannot defend themselves without us in their pursuit of their faith, their education and/or their freedom. Our goal is to protect the family as a unit and their rights to practice their faith or live their lives without intrusion from those opposing their values or their rights.
