the 2020 economic status of latinas Report
Hispanas Organized for Political Equality (HOPE) presents this third report in its series on the Economic Status of Latinas in California. This report, which updates national, state and regional indicators on Latina economic progress compared to other major demographic groups, comes at a critical historic moment as the United States and the globe face a three-fold crises of public health, economic recession, and social upheaval in the face of enduring racism. As such, these findings represent a key touchstone in an economic and social reality that is quickly shifting, and serves to document a historical baseline for the economic status of Latinas before the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, providing the context for how they might fare and respond to the current financial losses to individuals and households, schools, and the greater corporate and public sectors.
