Welcome to LPRAC

The Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission (LPRAC) was created by an act of the Connecticut General Assembly (CGA) in 1994. This 21 member non-partisan commission is mandated to make recommendations to the CGA and the Governor for new or enhanced policies that will foster progress in achieving health, safety, educational success, economic self-sufficiency, and end discrimination in Connecticut.

In this website you will find a wealth of information that highlights some of the most current work of the LPRAC.  Please take some time to browse through our pages to learn more about what we do or to find the latest information about issues affecting the state's Latino population.
