Hispanic Heritage Month

In the United States, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) by honoring the cultures and contributions of Latinx and Hispanic Americans.  Like so many others, Latinx and Hispanic Americans, or their ancestors, were drawn to this great country by the promise of a better life—one attained through hard work and perseverance.  And while the cultures and experiences of the U.S. Latinx and Hispanic population surely differ, we share an important commonality: the drive to make life better for each successive generation.

According to the Pew Research Center, almost a fifth of the total U.S. population is Latinx.  As our numbers continue to grow and our contributions to this country become increasingly visible, it is important that we not forget the sacrifices of those Latinx and Hispanic Americans who paved the way for us.
