Hispanic Heritage Month Begins Sept. 15
Wednesday, September 14, 2016 6:55 AM

Celebrate Juntos Avanzamos – Together We Advance

September 15 marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, the celebration of the culture and traditions that Hispanic and Latino Americans contribute to the US throughout the year.

Credit unions, with their tradition of service, help the underserved build assets toward a more secure economic future. Juntos Avanzamos (Together We Advance) is a designation for credit unions that are committed to serving and empowering unbanked and underbanked Hispanic consumers regardless of immigration status.

There are 52 Juntos Avanzamos credit unions in the United States, 22 of which were gained just since its national launch in September 2015. Juntos Avanzamos is now present in 12 states, serves more than 4 million consumers, and delivers financial services through 597 community branches.

Join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and learning more about Juntos Avanzamos!

Juntos Avanzamos was developed by the Cornerstone Credit Union League as a Hispanic outreach program in Texas. Today the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions is leading the national expansion of Juntos Avanzamos in partnership with the Network of Latino Credit Unions and Professionals, Coopera, the Cornerstone Credit Union League, and a growing number of state leagues and associations across the country.
