BROOKLYN - The Hispanic Federation, along with Brooklyn and other New York City Latino organizations are asking the next mayor and city council members to make Latinos a priority.

Many residents stood on the steps of City Hall yesterday to unveil their policy blueprint called "La Gran Manzana," or "The Big Apple: The Road Ahead for New York City's Latin Community.”

It calls for reforms on issues like health care, immigration, education and affordable housing.

Advocates for these groups say the reforms aren't only designed to help the Latino community, but the entire city.
