Hispanic Heritage Month Is in Full Swing
Thursday, September 20, 2018 6:40 AM

Celebrate Juntos Avanzamos – Together We Advance

Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 marks 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 committed to serving and empowering unbanked and underbanked Hispanic consumers regardless of immigration status.

Currently, there are 85 Juntos Avanzamos credit unions in 23 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia delivering financial services to millions of consumers.

Follow the Federation on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter for stories and credit union profiles that highlight how Juntos Avanzamos and community development credit unions are serving Hispanic communities. The Federation has created Facebook posts and a presentation template that Juntos Avanzamos credit unions can use to promote their designation.
