Northeast Hispanic Needs: A Guide for Action. Volume II.
The ASPIRA Institute for Policy Research used a conference of prominent Latino leaders and a survey of conference participants as means to gather information on the needs of the Hispanic American community in the Northeast. This report presents summaries of conference transactions and survey results. The 2-day conference, held in August 1986, was divided into three groups dealing with the following major concerns: (1) education and employment; (2) health, housing, and human services; and (3) community economic development and political participation. For each of these categories, a summary of the discussion is presented, as well as recommendations for action by the private sector, the public sector, and community organizations. The survey section describes survey methodology and presents results in priority order for the following six areas: (1) political education and empowerment needs; (2) education and training needs; (3) housing needs; (4) health needs; (5) human service needs; and (6) community and economic development needs. Listing of priority needs by geographic area and by employment, and overall priority needs from all categories (for all respondents and by State) are also presented. The following appendices are included: (1) the survey instrument; (2) population growth for Northeastern states, 1980-1986; (3) biographical sketches of conference participants; (4) selected resources; and (5) a list of 41 selected references.
