9th Retiring with Dignity Summit September 16 – 17, 2020
The 9th Annual Retiring with Dignity Summit will focus on the policy challenges faced by intergenerational Latinx families and share solutions for equitable retirement security and highlight resources for the dual caregiving needs of children and aging parents.
The balance of financial strain with the notion of commitment to family and community puts the Latinx community at the center of a broad set of issues – ripe for policy solutions and opening seats at the table for Latinos to have a say in what impacts their lives.
Our annual action-oriented legislative summit has steadily grown over the past nine years and has become a staple of bold policy exchanges and networking opportunities for Latinx across the country. This will be a virtual convening.

About The Summit
Since 2011, we have mobilized thousands of Latinos and launched culturally responsive programs through innovative partnerships across the country. This year, we will transition our summit into a digital convening where we will bring together Latino leaders, pension development peers, retirement experts, and congressional members. We will discuss common policy issues, affirm shared values and commit to concerted actions about improving the economic security of disadvantaged and at-risk Hispanic populations of the United States.
