Statement of Henry M. Ramirez, Chairman, Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish Speaking People, Before the Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations, House of Representatives, July 23, 1973.
Ramirez, Henry M.
On July 23, 1973, Dr. Henry M. Ramirez, Chariman of the Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish Speaking People, spoke before the Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations. Dr. Ramirez outlined why the Cabinet Committee is needed, gave examples of the Committee's accomplishments, and discussed future plans to assure that Federal programs reach the Spanish speaking. According to Dr. Ramirez, the Cabinet Committee was established to advise Federal departments and agencies on appropriate actions to assure that Federal programs reach the Spanish speaking people. Since its establishment in 1969, the Committee has accomplished; the distribution of $47 million to first time grantees for programs run by the Spanish speaking for the Spanish speaking; the establishment of Project Alpha to deal with job opportunities at the local level and Project Blue at the national level; effective data collection and reporting systems; the improvement of employment opportunities through Project Beta; strengthening the President's 16-point Program by helping to institutionalize it into the Federal structure; and getting agencies to be cognizant of Spanish speaking needs. In the future, the plans are to increase equal educational opportunities and the number of Spanish Americans on the Federal Register through local recruitment. (NQ)
