NYSUT celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with a new poster honoring Rita Moreno, an actress, dancer, and singer whose stage and screen career spans over seven decades. One of the last remaining stars from the golden age of Hollywood, in 1961 Moreno became the first Latina to win an Academy Award for her role as Anita in West Side Story. Moreno is one of only 18 EGOT award winners, performers who have received Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards, and one of only 24 to achieve the Triple Crown of Acting, winning Academy, Emmy and Tony Awards.

The NYSUT poster is available for download in English-language and Spanish-language versions; limited quantities are free for NYSUT members and leaders at the statewide union’s online publications ordering catalog, nysut.org/publications.
