Testimony to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus The Americas’ Future in the Balance: A Briefing on the Underfunding of Latino Communities

Thank you for allowing me to speak to you today on an important topic.  The Greenlining Institute is a California based research, advocacy, and leadership institute focused on improving the lives of people of color.  Our mission is simple — to ensure that all American’s have a fair shot to fullfill their economic potential.
