Hispanic employment levels in Milwaukee are high, but our community also has high levels of poverty and low household incomes.  This committee will focus on  strategies to move working individuals into greater paying, more skilled positions.

Our region has the lowest rate of Hispanic Owned Businesses out of 50 cities. This committee will focus on strategies to leverage  growth and startup programs, incubators, regional clusters, and financing options to increase the number of Hispanic Owned Businesses,strengthen and retain them.

Civic Participation and Influence

Hispanic participation in the voting electorate, positions of public service and policy influence is far below the level necessary to ensure that our viewpoints are heard and incorporated into actions that directly impact us. This committee will focus on increasing levels of Hispanic civic participation in voter turnout, public service and influence.
