Sincerity, Loyalty, and Unity

These are the qualities that make a woman complete.


RAÍCES is a Sorority-wide celebration during the last full week of September that is hosted by chapters of SLU. The 2020 theme is Nosotros La Gente: The Power of Our Voice.  No matter what our political views are, elections play a central role in the functioning of democracies. We aim to increase mindfulness about this political literacy and the elections within our communities. Let nosotras remind la gente the power of our collective voice!


For this year’s RAÍCES Week, Sigma Lambda Upsilon is excited to partner with She Should Run, a nonpartisan nonprofit working to dramatically increase the number of women considering a run for public office. The partnership includes bringing awareness to the barriers Latinas face in their journey to run for office, creating a space for political literacy to better understand our place in government and local offices and, a national fundraiser supporting She Should Run’s mission.

Together, we believe that when more women run, more women lead! Our national goal for 2020 is $5,000.
