Not only is it a celebration, but it is a recognition of what we all bring to the table as individuals. I am so thankful to my grandparents and parents who worked to bring us to the table and never stop working to keep us there.
Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15 each year. Since the 1960s, our country has used this time to celebrate the histories, cultures, and achievements of Hispanic/Latinx Americans.
