MALDEF on Employment

Public Policy: Employment

  • Boycott Paramount Films

    MALDEF is a vocal advocate for greater representation of Latinos in the film industry. We stand with the National Hispanic Media Coalition in a boycott of Paramount Pictures until the studio reverses its woeful record of excluding Latinos from its movies.

  • Preventing Workplace Harassment

    As a member of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace, MALDEF’s president helped examine ways to establish non-discriminatory workplaces.
