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.
In 2021, the UCLA Latino Policy and Politics Institute (UCLA LPPI) was focused on laying the foundation for a more inclusive economy and democracy. With the intersecting crises of structural racism, COVID-19, worsening economic inequality and climate disasters, the world is at a tipping point. And all eyes are on America to counteract a global descent into authoritarianism. In looking toward a brighter future, we must retire failed systems and build new institutions that yield shared prosperity so that all Americans not only survive but thrive.
