The UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Institute utilizes a multi-pronged approach to ensure Latinos and other communities of color have a seat at the decision-making table and fair opportunities to thrive.
UCLA LPPI is committed to working with leading experts, advocates and elected officials to address today’s most pressing issues. We are committed to championing evidence-based policy solutions that expand genuine opportunity for all Americans by shining a spotlight on how Latinos are and are not included in policy-making.
The UCLA Voting Rights Project is the flagship project of the UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Institute aimed at creating an accessible and equitable system of voting for all Americans through impact litigation, research, and clinical education to expand access to the ballot box.
Miguel Miguel is a Clean Energy Policy Assistant at Pacoima Beautiful and a graduate from the Masters in Urban and Regional Planning program from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. His research focuses on the intersectionality between housing access and environmental injustices faced in BIPOC communities. His research aims to understand how alternative forms of homeownership such as manufactured housing can create a more inclusive land ownership model for better power towards environmental injustice. While at the Luskin School of Public Affairs, Miguel Miguel collaborated on a larger research project led by LPPI faculty affiliate, Dr. Jose Loya, on several topics related to stratification in homeownership, including ethno-racial, gender, and Latino disparities in mortgage access.
