The Latino community has availed itself of the offer by CBS to facilitate the process of developing a Latino Agenda for Detroit. The approach of the Latino men and women involved in the creation of the Agenda has been to keep the formation open and democratic. Public meetings have been held and no formal organization has been established. The aim is to support existing organizations and efforts by providing a clear vision of what needs to be done in seven areas of policy and action that affect the quality of life in Detroit. Organizations will be asked to sign a memorandum of agreement supporting the Agenda. Only if and when existing organizations cannot meet the specific tasks of the Agenda will there be efforts to stimulate the creation of new ones.
