The Maryland Legislative Latino Caucus advocates for policy and legislation that will uplift our Latino and immigrant communities, while also benefitting our state. We believe in achieving equity, fairness, and the advancement of disadvantaged populations, including undocumented community members. Our focus includes making healthcare more accessible, ensuring every student has educational opportunities, protecting and fighting for our workers, and restoring community relations with police. We want to bring the Latino perspective to every conversation so that the voices of thousands of Marylanders are heard.
Our 2023 Priorities:
HB1098- Multilingualism is an Asset
HB56- Dual Language Education - Teacher Certification, Program Implementation, and Study
HB0547- Family Prosperity Act of 2023
HB0684- Landlord and Tenant - Residential Leases and Holdover Tenancies - Local Just Cause Termination Provisions
