Latinos in Colorado have endured historic racial inequities in education and COVID-19 has worsened educational disparities. Enrollment among Latinos at universities and community colleges has declined at the same time that Hispanics are one of the largest growing demographics in the state. A strong education is inextricably linked to good paying jobs, quality healthcare and economic opportunity. The time is now to make greater investment in Colorado’s educational systems. The education of our children is one of our most important legacies. The Latina Initiative supports the role Latinas have in making sure that education policies are equitable, transparent and inclusive.
