MCLA is a state agency that advises the government on matters of interest to Latinos who live in Minnesota. It is a bridge of communication and collaboration between Latinos and the government, the private sector and nonprofits.
Why should I care?
Without Latino engagement, MCLA cannot accurately communicate the interests of the community to the government nor can it serve the community effectively. Such engagement makes possible a stronger political voice and better socio-economic choices for the Latino community.
Who does the MCLA serve?
We serve Latino Minnesotans across the state and the people of Minnesota.
We invite you to read MCLA's Policy Brief on the state of housing for Latinx in Minnesota. The report addresses some of the challenges faced by Latinos to become homeowners, and provides policy recommendations. To learn more, click here.
