dc.description.abstractHit particularly hard by the economic crisis, Hispanics in New Jersey have seen commonsense policies put in place and their hard work begin to pay off following the Great Recession. Gains across several economic indicators point to improved economic security for Latinos. Given the Latino community’s size, work ethic, and resiliency, they have contributed to the Garden State’s economic resurgence. However, despite gains, challenges lie ahead as many in New Jersey, including Latinos, perceive that they have been left behind by policymakers and the economy. Examining Latinos’ status across a range of indicators in New Jersey can help lawmakers and advocates better understand how far the Latino community has come since the Great Recession, what is at stake for the Garden State’s economic future if policies and protections are rolled back, and what more can be done to ensure that Latinos and all in New Jersey continue to advance their economic security. NCLR is committed to advocating for policies that not only allow Latinos to contribute to the economy, but also share in the Garden State’s economic opportunities.en
