Access the tool here.
The California Latino Power Map is a free, interactive online mapping and data tool created by the Latino Community Foundation (LCF) and Measure of America. The California Latino Power Map showcases the most comprehensive list of Latino-led nonprofits in California and presents the challenges and opportunities communities face through a wide range of socioeconomic indicators. The website helps users visualize where Latino nonprofits are located alongside contextual information about their surrounding communities; it features the locations of over 500 Latino nonprofits as well as nearly 50 well-being indicators for the state’s 265 Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs). PUMAs are collections of counties or census tracts within counties. They are defined by the US Census Bureau and have populations of at least 100,000 people.
The California Latino Power Map is designed as a resource to aid philanthropists, grassroots leaders, businesses, government agencies, and elected officials in identifying local Latino leadership and learning about the powerful work undertaken in their communities. This critical tool will advance LCF’s vision of California: a state where grant-making strategies, public policies, and other services recognize and build on the strength and power of Latinos.
Measure of America provides annual data updates (as available) and adds new indicators based on user requests. For data inquiries, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
