State of Hispanic America 1991: An Overview

Research Report

Narrowing the economic gap between Hispanics and other Americans will require immediate, sustained policy intervention and substantial public investment.

Because current programs do not necessarily take into account the special characteristics and needs of Hispanics or serve them equitably, a new focus on assuring nondiscrimination and equity is also required. Progress towards full participation in U.S. society will also require considerable self-help efforts by the Hispanic community. The challenge for the 1990s is to find new ways to address old problems and to enlist the support of both the Hispanic community and the broader American society to work towards true equality of opportunity for Hispanic Americans.
