HACER's mission is to affect institutional decisions and public policy through collaborative work, leadership development, research, and evaluation.
Hispanic Advocacy and Community Empowerment through Research (HACER) is the Midwest's only Latino-lead, Latino-specific research organization.
HACER works in concert with Latino communities to access, generate, and disseminate credible and relevant research in order to inform institutional decisions and public policy.
Our Vision is that HACER will:
- Ensure a broad array of decisions are informed by accessible, culturally, and linguistically competent research
- Bring the Latino narrative into public discussions of social issues
- Increase understanding of the diverse Latino experience among leaders and organizations of influence, as well as community based organizations.
