Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month

Join us between September 15 – October 15 as we celebrate Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month! During this month-long celebration, we honor the history, culture, and contributions of those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. We commemorate the many achievements that Latinx and Hispanic people have made, from colorful visual art to compelling literary works to relentless activism.
