Senator’s bipartisan resolution honors the contributions of Arizona’s Hispanic community by designating September 15th – October 15th as Hispanic Heritage Month
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored a bipartisan resolution designating September 15 through October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate and honor the economic, cultural, and historic contributions of Arizona’s Hispanic community.
“Arizona’s Hispanic community has been fundamental to our history, culture, and economy – providing lasting contributions that make our state the best place to live and thrive. We’re continuing to support Arizonans by increasing opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their families,” said Sinema.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 32.3% of Arizonans identify as Hispanic. Sinema’s bipartisan resolution distinguishes September 15 through October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month and celebrates the integral role Latinos play in the United States’ economy, culture, and identity. Since she has been in the U.S. Senate, Sinema has consistently cosponsored bipartisan Senate resolutions celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
This past summer, Sinema met with women small business owners, that included Hispanic businesswomen, to discuss supporting and growing economic opportunities, and spoke with the U.S. Hispanic Business Council in Phoenix about retaining and expanding economic competitiveness among Arizona’s Hispanic business community.
