National Council of La Raza, Washington, DC.
These proceedings summarize the events and discussion which occurred during the Third National Hispanic Leadership Conference, and present the recommendations in 12 separate issue areas which were developed by working panels and adopted by the plenary body. The conference was attended by approximately 150 Hispanic leaders from throughout the United States and from many Hispanic subgroups. The attendees included leaders of Hispanic organizations, elected and appointed officials, corporate officials, and issue experts. Their purpose was to prepare and present to decision makers (particularly the major political parties and candidates) a common agenda for policy action. The conference was divided into twelve panels: (1) the political empowerment forum; (2) the economic development panel; (3) the administration of justice panel; (4) the energy panel; (5) the media panel; (6) the education panel; (7) the arts and humanities panel; (8) the corporate and philanthropic responsibility panel; (9) the foreign policy panel; (10) the employment panel; (11) the health panel; and (12) the housing panel. Following separate summaries and discussions of each panel, are the participants' policy recommendations on the respective set of issues. Also described are the conference's opening and closing plenary sessions and two special luncheons held with presidential candidates or their representatives. A conference program is appended.
