Quiroz, Julia Teresa
This study reports twenty-two Hispanic leaders' responses to interviews assessing their perspectives on the nature, prevalence, and causes of poverty among Hispanics. This report contains six parts. Part 1 is an introduction. Part 2 presents the methodology used in the study. Part 3 gives the leaders' demographic and educational backgrounds. Part 4 presents the respondents' views on the nature of poverty among Hispanics today. Part 5 presents their views on current public policies concerning poverty among Hispanics and possible strategies to end it. Part 6 offers the following conclusions: (1) Hispanic institutions can serve a vital role in improving the lives of low-income Hispanics; (2) the issues of importance to these leaders sometimes parallel other national issues, but often with a different emphasis; (3) these Hispanic leaders blend a range of strategies in their approach to poverty; and (4) many of these leaders identified the special challenges facing Latinas. Also included are three appendixes which include the responses to the questions in seven tables, a list of the leaders interviewed, and a list of the advisors for the study. (MYM)
