Increasing the funding and resources for all ethnic studies programs, as well as programs designed for the welfare of all working people. C. Increasing the level of political representation of Chicanos, minorities, women, and other working class people at all levels of government. D. Increasing the access, hiring, and representation of Chicanos, minorities, women, and other working class people at all levels of civil society, including, among others, law, medicine, industry, and business.
