  • Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month


    Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15.   With the Civil Rights movement during the 1960's there was a push to recognize and celebrate the diversity of our country.  California Congressman George E. Brown introduced a bill in 1968 designating the celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Week starting on September 15.    

    National Hispanic Heritage Month was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1988.  The timing of National Hispanic Heritage Month coincides with the Independence Day celebrations of several Latin American nations.  National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latinx Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.
