Latino Policy & Politics Initiative

Nonpartisan policy solutions for the 21st century

NEW POLICY RESEARCH & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

In September 2018, LPPI launched rapid-response policy project to address California’s Latino physician crisis to increase the health and well-being of all Californians.

LPPI and the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) conducted the first analysis of the Smithsonian Institution’s progress in implementing the ten recommendations from its 1994 report, Willful Neglect, this century.

Elected officials from over a dozen different states, including state legislators, municipal and school district officials, gathered Aug. 3-5 at UCLA Luskin for a landmark conference co-hosted by LPPI and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.

LPPI analyzed the election outcomes in real-time to identify: 1) Latino Vote Choice and 2) Latino Voter Turnout in the 2018 Midterm Elections for Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, & Texas.
