CALL FOR POLICY RESEARCH BRIEFS

Texas Latino Policy Symposium III

Abstract Deadline: April 3, 2020

Conference Days: October 1-2, 2020

The Texas Latino Policy Symposium Planning Committee is inviting submission of Policy Research Briefs for the 3rd Texas Latino Policy Symposium (TXLPS III) scheduled for October 1-2, 2020 at St Mary’s University in San Antonio. 

The current political environment, which includes nativism and racialized ideologies, intensifies the challenges for Latino advocates and progressive allies to gain policy influence. Our focus is to arm community advocates and policymakers with information that directs human capital investment policies and improves the economic mobility and overall bienestar (well-being) of Latino families.

Education, jobs/benefits, wages, health care, housing, economic development, immigration, voter suppression/gerrymandering, and taxation exemplify key policy areas affecting social and economic mobility. Research, data, and communications that provide real-world Latino perspectives on public policies must continually be strengthened.

Latino demographic growth, their impact on the state’s economy, and their political engagement should lead to greater influence over policy decisions that impact their daily lives.
