COSSA seeking public input on strategic plan for Latino community

The Michigan Commission on Spanish-Speaking Affairs (COSSA) is seeking public input through March 2, 2006 on its proposed Strategic Plan, which it will present to Governor Jennifer M. Granholm.

The draft plan and comment form is available on the COSSA Web site at: www.michigan.gov/cossa.

COSSA Chairperson José Reyna

 “The commissioners have set an aggressive agenda to empower the Hispanic community in the years ahead. The goals of this plan are to develop capacity and opportunities for Hispanics to assume more leadership positions, increase opportunities for economic prosperity, increase academic achievement, and influence legislation that impacts the Hispanic population,” said COSSA Chairperson José Reyna. “The Commission invites everyone to review the proposed strategic plan and welcomes feedback.” 

COSSA was created in 1975 to serve Michigan’s growing Spanish-speaking population which is today the second-largest and fastest-growing minority group in Michigan. The Commission is made up of 15 individuals appointed by the Governor to develop policies and plans to serve the needs of Michigan’s Spanish-speaking people.

“The Commission’s mission is to promote the diverse interests of Hispanics in Michigan to have lives that are abundant with opportunities,” Reyna states. “COSSA’s proposed strategic plan outlines our goals through 2009 to help Michigan Hispanics improve their own quality of life in the next few years. This plan is a dynamic document that will evolve as conditions for Hispanics in Michigan change.”

The new strategic plan focuses on four key areas: Economic Development, Education, Leadership, and Political Process, and Legislative.
