The Latinx Institute is excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
What is Hispanic Heritage Month you may ask? The resource hispanicheritagemonth.gov:
“Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.” (https://www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov/about/)
- September 15th is the Independence Day of five Central American Countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
