AARP Illinois Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

Posted on 09/18/17 by Dina Anderson


At AARP Illinois we celebrate diversity! We join with members of our state's growing and thriving Hispanic/Latino community to celebrate their successes and share their vision.

Starting today and for the next five weeks we will be posting videos recognizing and honoring leaders in our state's Hispanic/Latino community.

Elena Duran is a leader in the Little Village neighborhood. She's been a community leader and business owner for almost 40 years. Watch and share her story, because we are Celebrando la Herencia Hispana!
