Education is a transformational force in the Latino community. And with new data showing 51% of all Californians under the age of 18 are Latino, quality education is now a critical statewide issue. That’s why the Southern California Latino Policy Center will provide Latino education policymakers with resources and support to serve the students and parents in their local communities.

California’s economic future is relying in large measure on the economic stability and success of the state’s 14 million Latinos. The development of a strong Latino middle-class is vital to California’s economic stability. A key to that success is the recovery of the LA region – a once vibrant area beginning to emerge from a devastating recession. This is an excellent opportunity for our local Latino elected officials to collaborate in the development of more effective regional economic development solutions.
