National Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 – October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Each year, we celebrate the culture, history, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. From artists such as Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda, to the Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the influence and contributions from the LatinX community is found in every aspect of our nation.
