Research Areas

The National Council of La Raza engages in policy-oriented research in a number of issue areas, including health, wealth-building, education, immigration, youth, the economy and employment, and juvenile justice. We concentrate our research and advocacy efforts on these specific issues because they not only present the most significant challenges for the Latino community but also represent the areas in which we can effect the most change through solid research and evidence-based advocacy.
