ILLCF Policy Priorities
ILLCF's Mission and Vision:
Increasing access to federal, state, and municipal resources that benefit Illinois Latinos, including initiatives that drive economic prosperity for Latinos, help them escape poverty and alleviate financial insecurity, ensure fair compensation and supportive work environments, and increased access to education and training for advancement in workplace and community.
Forming and sustaining partnerships with businesses and organizations in order to enhance economic and employment opportunities for Illinois Latinos, through workshops and panels, internships, facilitating communication with business, government education and the nonprofit sectors, career training, and networking.
Supporting the widespread distribution of information on public policy that impacts Illinois Latinos, through an annual report on Latinos and the Illinois economy.
Providing resources for young Latinos in Illinois to succeed in education, particularly through its college scholarship program that has already granted close to $1,000,000 to more than 500 students in Illinois.
