<i>The Atlantic</i>’s Progress Report: The State of the Latino Community

The Atlantic’s Progress Report: The State of the Latino Community

Latinos have fought against labels and misrepresentations, unequal educational and economic opportunities, widening wealth and education gaps, and more for centuries. But the coronavirus pandemic, the social-justice movement, and other factors such as the growing trend toward diversity and inclusivity have had a significant impact on the community’s economics, education, and even identity. So where do we go from here?

Building off of The Atlantic’s legacy of explicating and illuminating American ideals, we produced a series of conversations that unpacked the state of progress among Latinos in America. We convened economists, scholars, policy makers, and activists to outline how we can harness this community’s power to enact sustainable changes that will yield long-term success.
