Postdoctoral Fellow in Residence
UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center
“My wife and I, both Latino baby-boomers, are part of that generation that prospered through education, work and service and contributed in significant ways to our nation; there remains, however, a nagging question: Will we and our compañeras and compañeros receive the benefits for our contributions to society, or will large portions of our aging Latino population be neglected?”
