COUNT ON US TO BUILD JOBS, COMMUNITIES, AND THE ECONOMY.
Latinos have shaped life in Arizona for generations. Like all Arizonans, we want to do well for our families and contribute to our communities through jobs, spending, taxes, and culture.
WE KEEP ARIZONA WORKING.
Latino-owned businesses employ more than a million people in Arizona.
The state’s hospitality, agriculture, healthcare, and professional services industries depend on Latino workers.
WE CONTRIBUTE TO ARIZONA CULTURE AND INFRASTRUCTURE.
From our history to our food to our art, Latinos have always played a part in Arizona’s unique culture and quality of life.
Latino immigrants add $2.4B in tax dollars to help support our schools, roads, emergency services, and much more.
WE HELP DRIVE THE STATE ECONOMY.
Arizona Latinos produce goods and services worth more than $90B each year.
We spend over $63B at businesses right here in Arizona.
Diversity has made us a better department in so many ways.ARDELL DELIZFire Captain, Phoenix Fire Department

BUT WE FACE BARRIERS THAT LIMIT OPPORTUNITIES.
When more Latinos have access to good jobs, education, homes, and healthcare, we can build good lives for ourselves—and contribute even more to our economy and communities.
WE HAVE LIMITED ACCESS TO HEALTH INSURANCE.
WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH LATINO EDUCATORS.
HOMES ARE NOT BEING BUILT IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS.
