This Center is now officially closed, but its website remains live. The Center was an applied research center housed at the University of California at Santa Cruz. The faculty, staff and associated researchers worked with an international mix of community activists, affiliated researchers and students to provide serious research to elevate the quality of public debate, timely policy analysis to aid community leaders and decision makers, and outreach and education to improve public discourse on challenging topics. Activities included research in the areas of environmental justice, regionalism, and affordable housing, collaborative projects with community organizations around capacity building for public policy debates, public lectures, ongoing interaction with policy makers and decision makers, maintenance of relevant databases and survey capacity, and an annual summer institute for Latin American and U.S. Latino organizers and activists.
