As Hispanic Heritage Month unfolds, the nation unites to acknowledge and embrace the vibrant spirit, cultural pride, and invaluable contributions that define the Hispanic Latino community's influence on American society. AARP champions this month-long celebration by honoring and recognizing the amazing achievements of this determined community.

Somos countless contributions to American culture.

Latinos have undeniably molded the American landscape, leaving a legacy across various fields. From literature to politics, science and sports, Latinos have made substantial contributions that continue to inspire. Courageous characters like Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and baseball legend Roberto Clemente didn't just blaze new trails; their vision and leadership continue to shape the American narrative.

Somos a year-round companion.

AARP stands with the comunidad latina throughout the year and especially during Hispanic Heritage Month, organizing a range of events such as movie screenings, art exhibits, workshops (virtually and in person), and many more activities that highlight the vibrant beats of Latino culture. From lively dance sessions to healthy cooking classes, discover all the events and resources that AARP has to offer near you.

Somos a trusted resource.

Beyond las festividades, as a wise friend and fierce defender, we offer trusted resources and guidance about the issues that concern us all. Whether it’s navigating the nuances of caregiving or protecting yourself from fraudulent scams, AARP provides support and valuable insights. Plus, AARP actively encourages community involvement. Through various volunteering programs, we open the door for individuals to collaborate and contribute toward the growth and betterment of local neighborhoods.
