Recognizing that the Census Bureau has a very poor record of hiring Hispanics in the federal government with Latinos comprising less than 6 percent of the Bureau’s permanent workforce, LULAC urges that the Census Bureau’s EEO Office establish a system to assess its failure to identify the persistent under-representation of Hispanics in the Bureau’s work and develop effective strategies for addressing this problem in order to increase future problem-solving capacities. LULAC strongly supports a standardized review of the Census’ managers and supervisors based in part, on their performance with respect to EEO issues like hiring a diversified employment force, including Hispanics.
LULAC supports Census to provide the Hispanic Census Committee with timely and transparent data on the recruitment and hiring of Hispanics for each of the 12 regional offices and each state that it represents, by grade level, and job title, on a monthly basis.
LULAC takes a strong position in urging the Census Bureau to include and emphasize in its presentations, community activities, and written promotional materials, its assurance to LULAC, and the Hispanic Community that the information gathered is completely confidential, Under Title 13, the Census Bureau collects data solely to produce statistics.
Improving the quality of the Latino lives through environmental sustainability and conservation. Through on-going partnerships with Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), The Energy Foundation, and other community organizations, LULAC has been a key ally in advocating for environmental sustainability and clean energy at the local, state, and national levels. LULAC believes that addressing environmental issues and holding stakeholders accountable will improve the quality of life for Latinos living in the US.
LULAC works to advance the educational attainment of Latinos by engaging the community in advocacy and policy efforts at the local, state, and federal levels.
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 engage community partners to create local ambassadors to best impact the needs of every region.
