ISSUES

EDUCATION

LULAC believes that universal and quality public education is the foundation for lifelong success, and strongly opposes any measure that denies education as a fundamental right, including that of immigrant children. School curricula and textbooks should reflect culturally-based teaching methods grounded in research. LULAC supports legislation and policy decisions targeted at decreasing the Hispanic dropout rate and closing of the achievement gap. LULAC urges Congress to increase funding to implement targeted programs to encourage Hispanic students to remain in school. (More)

HOUSING

LULAC supports an increase in the nation’s stock of affordable housing. It particularly champions an increase in resources to build, rehabilitate and preserve housing for low and extremely low-income households in both the rental and purchase markets. In addition, LULAC supports the development of more housing for the elderly; the creation of additional emergency shelter to permanent housing for victims of domestic violence; the development of integrated permanent supportive housing for people with disabilities and an increase in funding for programs and services to end homelessness. LULAC also supports investments in green affordable housing. (Continued)

HEALTHCARE

The LULAC Latinos Living Healthy (LLH) initiative is a comprehensive approach designed to reach Latinos across the United States and Puerto Rico to address health disparities in our communities. The three main goals of the initiative are to educate and increase awareness of health issues within the Latino community, distribute information and resources to individuals who otherwise may not have access to them and to engage community partners to create local ambassadors to best impact the needs of every region.
