The following is a statement from Julie Chavez Rodriguez, campaign manager for Biden-Harris 2024:
“Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to come together and celebrate our community’s rich diversity, culture, and contributions to our country. From the activists fighting on behalf of La Causa to the frontline workers who powered our country through a pandemic, Latinos continue to leave an indelible mark on the cultural fabric and history of this nation – Hispanic history is American history.
“In 2020, Latinos used their voice to put President Biden and Vice President Harris in office and as a result, the Biden-Harris administration has delivered historic progress for our community. Thanks to President Biden’s economic agenda, the unemployment rate for Hispanics is near historic lows, Latinos now have better access than ever to affordable health insurance, and Latinos are opening small businesses at the fastest rate in a decade. While we celebrate this historic progress, so much is on the line for our community. MAGA Republicans would rather help the ultra-rich and big corporations than help hardworking Latino families, all while attacking our hard-fought freedoms. As we head into Hispanic Heritage Month, we acknowledge the work ahead to expand economic opportunity and protect our freedoms.”
