Today, February 20, marks the 50th anniversary of UnidosUS’s founding in 1968. What began as a small collection of young activists in Phoenix has become the country’s largest Hispanic-serving nonprofit, helping millions of Latinos define the American Dream on their own terms, then helping them achieve it.
We’re taking the day to reflect on the half century of work and impact we’ve been able to achieve together. As inspiring as it is to look back on our history, we also need to use this opportunity to look forward and envision how we can keep serving our community.
Janet Murguía, our President and CEO, recorded a video message to share her perspective on the milestone and our path moving forward. You can watch her message in English or Spanish below.
