There are currently about 896,000 Hispanic Americans living in Pennsylvania, contributing to what makes this commonwealth thrive. Businesses, schools and communities all benefit from a diverse makeup of Pennsylvanians, including those with roots from Mexico, Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and other Latin American and Iberian nations. The PA Senate Democrats are committed to recognizing the specific needs and issues facing the Latino community. As community members, we are honored to learn more about the stories, successes and struggles that have shaped the Hispanic experience in the United States and beyond.
From now through October 15th, events will be happening throughout the Commonwealth to recognize and celebrate Hispanic heritage. We encourage you to participate in your local area and recognize the dynamic ways Hispanic leaders and traditions have contributed to the melting pot that is our country.
