Northeast Roundtable White Papers

We are hosting a series of regional roundtables across the United States. The second of these was held at Yale Law School on April 8-9, 2017.

As part of these roundtables, we asked keynote speakers to prepare white papers on:

1. History of Latinos in the region   

This white paper focuses on the history of the Latino presence in the Northeast. The white paper was written by Professor Carmen Whalen (Williams College).

2. Demographic profile of Latinos in the region

The demographic profile of Latinos in the Northeast provides a statistical snapshot of how the Latino population in the Midwest is faring with respect to immigration, educational access, economic participation, and political mobilization. Advisory council member Douglas Massey and Amelie Constant authored this paper.

3. Key law and policy levers in the region

The law and policy white paper was prepared by Juan Cartagena, President and General Counsel of LatinoJustice PRLDEF.
