Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month

This is an annual celebration of Latinx and Hispanic communities in the United States. The month-long commemoration is a chance to learn and celebrate Hispanic and Latinx cultures. Here is a bit of history - On September 17, 1968, Congress passed Public Law 90-48, officially authorizing and requesting the president to issue annual proclamations declaring September 15 and 16 to mark the beginning of National Hispanic Heritage Week. Years later, on September 14, 1989, President George H.W. Bush (who had been a sponsor of the original Hispanic Heritage Week resolution while serving in the House in 1968) became the first president to declare the 31-day period from September 15 to October 15 as National Hispanic Heritage Month. The timing of Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month coincides with the Independence Day celebrations of several Latin American nations (, 2022).

You too can celebrate! We've put together a short list of ways you can celebrate and there is something for everyone. Enjoy!
