Hispanic Strategies for 1984-85. A Planning Document.
Washington State Commission on Mexican American Affairs, Olympia.
Policy suggestions of the Washington State Commission on Mexican American Affairs for 1984 and 1985 are outlined in this two-year comprehensive plan. First, facts about the commission's membership, budget and purposes (as well as general data on the Hispanic population of Washington) are presented. Next, seven issue statements are provided, each of which focuses on problems of Washington Hispanics in one of the following areas: immigration; employment and business development; primary secondary education; postsecondary education; voter registration; the Hispanic elderly; and the Commission's administrative, financial, and legislative well-being. Each section follows the same format: the problem is described, some of its causes are suggested, current resources for addressing the problem are discussed, a planning objective is stated, and major action steps to achieve the objective are enumerated. Finally, the Washington State legislation which enacted the Commission on Mexican American Affairs is presented. (KH)
