Over a decade ago, Mujeres Latinas en Acción embarked upon an ambitious project – a comprehensive study on the role of Latinas in Chicago. Latina Portrait was borne, and the report provided a revealing look into Latina history, and how Latinas have shaped the social and cultural makeup of Chicago's communities.
Latina Portrait contains research derived from both quantitative and qualitative data and analysis that provides an overall examination of Latina experiences in the Chicago area. Policy recommendations are included in the report offering recommendations to address the root causes of problems facing Latinas in the Chicago metropolitan area. Mujeres hopes this study will offer the information and insight needed to improve the lives of Latinas and their families.
