National Directory of Hispanic Organizations, 1997-1998.
Congressional Hispanic Caucus Inst., Washington, DC.
This directory lists Hispanic organizations in the United States. Each listed organization serves and represents local Latino communities. Over the years, however, the directory has come to include more than organizational listings. Recent editions have included census data that provide a demographic profile of the national Latino community and a count of elected Hispanic officials nationally and for states with high concentrations of Latinos. Also included is information on how a bill becomes a law, how to write to a member of Congress, and how to obtain campaign financial data. National statistics are provided for Hispanic social, economic, employment, and educational attainment. Organizations are grouped by location into: (1) Washington, DC (34 organizations); (2) Puerto Rico (2 organizations); (3) the western United States (48 organizations grouped by state); (4) the southern United States (33 organizations, also by state); (5) the Midwest (11 organizations); and (6) the Northeast (20 organizations, by state). A "Building New Challenges" section discusses resources for community programs. (SLD)
