One Voice, One Future: A Latino Funding Agenda from the Latino Community and Its Leadership. The Los Angeles County Latino Assessment Study. Full Report. [Tomas Rivera Center Working Paper.]
Tomas Rivera Center, Claremont, CA.
This report identifies funding priorities to assist governmental and philanthropic agencies in meeting the long-range needs of the Latino community of Los Angeles (California). Information was gathered from a community survey, a survey of Latino community leaders, and focus groups comprised of representatives from various sectors of the Latino community. Of the many needs identified, Latinos feel that the problems of women and children warrant special attention because of their acute vulnerability and historical neglect. In addition to funding, more attention needs to be focused on empowering individuals and organizations in the Latino community. The following primary funding priorities and strategies for meeting needs are discussed in detail: (1) political participation; (2) education; (3) economic development; and (4) leadership development. The following additional priorities are also discussed: (1) health; (2) social services; (3) immigration; (4) legal services; (5) crime; and (6) housing. Comprehensive plans designed to attack the larger problems facing Latinos should be developed based on these priorities. Statistical data are presented in 64 tables and 16 graphs. (FMW)
