Latinos in California: Protecting and Defending Progress in the Golden State

Fact Sheet

Hit particularly hard by the economic crisis, Hispanic Californians have seen commonsense policies put in place and their hard work begin to pay off following the Great Recession.

Given the Latino community’s size, work ethic, and resiliency, they have contributed to the Golden State’s economic resurgence. This fact sheet examines Latinos’ status across a range of indicators in California to help lawmakers and advocates better understand how far the Latino community has come since the Great Recession, what is at stake for California’s economic future if policies and protections are rolled back, and what more can be done to ensure that Latinos, and all Californians, continue to advance their economic security.
