Since its inception ULP Network has grown to include more than 5 thousand members globally primarily in the NY tri-state area, San Diego California and Washington, DC, with more members added daily, and local chapters being formed every year. ULP Network has a strong social media presence on all major platforms.

All events celebrate and/or raise consciousness about varying aspects of Latino peoples and cultures. Events all foster the development of strong bonds among members/attendees and between ULP and the community. They include social gatherings like dinner, brunch, happy hours, dance parties, wine tastings, music and cultural events and festivals focusing on art, theatre, film music, literature, panel discussions, community outreach and fundraising activities, all opportunities for networking.
