Our 2020 Platform

2020 UnidosUS Issues Platform | Adelante

There is no doubt that America is in the midst of multiple crises and it will take strong political leadership and unified action from all its people—including its nearly 60 million strong Latino community—to help the country heal and recover.

This second edition of the UnidosUS 2020 Platform reflects the current challenges facing Latinos and provides tangible recommendations to help our country tap the strength of one of our greatest national assets: America’s diversity.

Economy

Latinos have borne the brunt of the economic fallout from the pandemic. Depression-era unemployment levels are taking their toll on the newly unemployed, and Latinos are disproportionately represented among them.

Immigration

Our leaders must commit to delivering immigration reform that simultaneously restores the rule of law by creating a roadmap to legalization and citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans, and promoting smart enforcement that improves safety, supports legal immigration channels, and prevents discrimination.

Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened structural inequities in access to affordable, quality health care. y, health care has quickly risen in the polls and intensified among Latino voters as a top concern.

Education

Approximately one in three Latino households lack high-speed internet and 17% of Latino households lack a computer; Latino kids are at a great disadvantage in a moment when online and distance learning is vital. Our success as a nation depends on their success as future business leaders, creators, philanthropists, parents, workers, lawmakers, and taxpayers.
