Policy Priorities

Our policy positions embrace the need for equitable access to education, economic opportunities, and health and human resources for individuals and families. The critical questions with most policy making are: what issue is being addressed; what populations will be affected; what are the intended benefits; what will it cost; and how will it be paid-for, and is it fair? One of the best writing services can answer that question.



Bienestar Platform and Policy Issues

Bienestar is a holistic concept integrating health, job security, housing, and education in a bi-cultural framework of physical, mental, and faith values in the Latino community.

Health Care Reform

We have an overarching concern with the health care reform trends toward privatization and market-driven approaches. Our position is for a single-payer or other universal health system encompassing equitable criteria for access, quality, and costs. Current efforts to reform Medicaid, Medicare and SCHIP must be monitored from a Latino policy and impact perspective.

Reforming the Immigration System

Immigrants have always been important to the future of our country. The fact that we have a broken immigration system is not of their doing. Yet heightened anti-immigrant sentiments and their scapegoating are constructing barriers to citizenship. Bienestar, particularly health care, education and employment policy is being negatively impacted by the broken immigration system which requires a comprehensive reform strategy.
