The Latinos for a Secure Retirement (LSR) coalition was launched in 2011 to serve as the pre-eminent voice for the Hispanic Americans in the fight to defend Social Security as new threats emerged against the 75 year-old program. LSR’s mission includes protecting Social Security, strengthening Medicare, increasing pension access and financial literacy, ensuring Latino seniors get equal access to Older American Act services, and working to ensure more Latinos are in key policy and advocacy positions important to an aging population.
The LSR coalition brings together some of the strongest and most prominent advocates for Latinos in the country including the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), The Hispanic Federation, the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA), MANA- A National Latina Organization, SER- Jobs for Progress National, Inc., the Institute for the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Elderly, the American GI Forum, the National Association for Hispanic Elderly, and the National Hispanic Medical Association.
The LSR coalition has released a plan to make Social Security fully solvent for the next 75 years and beyond, without cutting already modest benefits or increasing the retirement age. The LSR coalition has created dozens of additional reports and fact sheets on Social Security, Medicare, SSI and pensions, and we’ve spoken to Latinos at townhall events across the country and through print, radio, and TV media appearances.
