Hispanic Unity of Florida’s (HUF) Vision is that everyone should be empowered to live their American Dream and its Mission is empowering immigrants and others to become self-sufficient, productive and civically engaged.
But our Vision and Mission will never be fulfilled without all of our families having equal access to the tools and benefits they are rightfully entitled to.
HUF’s 2023 Public Policy Agenda seeks to highlight the multi-generational issues our community is facing and how these issues are barriers to reaching our full potential, as individuals and as a community.
Hispanic Unity of Florida and the Urban League of Broward County partnered with Florida International University’s Metropolitan Center to produce two comprehensive reports: The State of Black Broward and The State of Hispanic and Immigrant Broward.
These studies provide a comprehensive, holistic analysis of key population, economic, and social trends, factors, and conditions that allow for an informed discussion on racial and ethnic equity and disparity issues facing Broward County and its municipalities.
HUF has used the findings of these studies to explain why these issues are being highlighted in this Policy Agenda and the importance of addressing such issues.
Our organization focuses on the areas of Economic Development, Education, and Healthcare. These areas mirror the Programs at HUF that provide direct service assistance to our community.
Our hope is that collectively, we – families, business, government, faith, and community groups – can truly advocate for game-changing policies that address social and economic barriers impacting our children and adults.
