Latinos in Virginia Protecting and Defending Progress in the Old Dominion

Working Paper

Hit particularly hard by the economic crisis, Hispanic Virginians have seen commonsense policies put in place and their hard work begin to pay off following the Great Recession. Given the Latino community’s work ethic and industrious spirit, they have contributed to the Old Dominion’s economic resurgence. This fact sheet examines Latinos’ status across a range of indicators in Virginia to help lawmakers and advocates better understand how far the Latino community has come since the Great Recession, what is at stake for the Virginia’s economic future if policies and protections are rolled back, and what more can be done to ensure that Latinos, and all Virginians, continue to advance their economic security.
