LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico LULAC has announced it will hold its state convention in Las Cruces.
The civil rights group says the 85th Annual New Mexico LULAC State Convention will be held May 23 to 26. The group says it will discuss issues around education and the U.S. Justice Department investigation into Albuquerque police.
LULAC was one of the many advocacy groups pushing for a probe of the Albuquerque police amid 37 officer shootings since 2010.
The state convention comes as the organization is planning its national convention in New York in July.
