Latin American Cultural Union

The Latin American Cultural Union is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating and preserving the culture and Latin American traditions in southwestern Pennsylvania. LACU seeks to unify the Latin American community in Pittsburgh by finding common ground and focusing on things that unite everyone as a cohesive group with a shared culture. LACU defines culture as the language, beliefs, values and norms, customs, dress, diet, functions, knowledge and skills and all other things that Latin Americans learn to make the lifestyle of the society what it is today. Its mission is to promote, preserve and enrich the Latin American culture, while unifying the Latino community and bridging with other communities within the Greater Pittsburgh region.
