September 2016 Issue
As we commemorate the last Hispanic Heritage month observation under the Obama Administration, we want to take a moment to thank our students, families and community members for their support in helping us to advance our cradle to career agenda. Last year, together we cultivated 150Commitments to Action with a collective investment of over $335 million in support of improving educational equity and opportunities for Hispanic students across the country. This is a clear example of how collectively we can make a difference in the lives of students and families. In that spirit, we ask you to join us in furthering our agenda. Over the over the course of the next few months, the Initiative will continue to focus on advancing opportunities for Hispanic girls and women in the country, working with Hispanic Serving Institutions to diversity the teaching workforce, elevating the voice of our migrant farmworker families, and promoting the importance of our college completion efforts. With your support, we can build a better future for the Hispanic community for years to come. Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
