Washington, D.C. — Today, Mayra Macías, Chief Strategy Officer of Building Back Together, released the following statement in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month: 

“For generations, Latinos have helped build, shape, and enrich our nation. This Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to not just celebrate the countless contributions our community has made, but to recognize the challenges many Latinos continue to face, and the essential work that remains to be done to build a better future for everyday families and workers.” 

“Thanks to the Biden-Harris Administration’s unyielding focus on getting shots in arms, workers on the job, and kids back in school, Latino families – who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic – have benefited from the robust economic recovery and historic job growth since President Biden took office. During Hispanic Heritage Month and every month after, we will continue to focus on the priorities Latino families and families across the country hold – putting even more Americans to work, cutting taxes for everyday families, lowering the costs of essentials from health care to child care, opening the doors to educational opportunities, and creating a pathway to citizenship for millions of TPS holders, Dreamers, farm workers, and essential workers.” 

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, Building Back Together will highlight the ways the Biden-Harris Administration’s agenda has and will continue to impact Latinos. Most recently, Building Back Together announced a $1 million dollar investment in a new television, digital, and radio ad campaign speaking directly to Latinos in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada about the Build Back Better Agenda. These 30-second ads spotlight the Biden-Harris Administration’s work to support small business owners and plans to lower costs for working families, including making health care and child care more affordable through the Build Back Better agenda.
