Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month 2020

Latinx Heritage Month recognizes, honors, and celebrates the resilience, contributions, and cultures of Latinx, Chicanx, and all Latinx-identified folx from America and with ancestors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain, and Central and South America. 

It began in 1968 when then-President Lyndon Johnson signed Proclamation 3869 designating National Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988 it expanded to a month, running each year from September 15 - October 15.
