Hispanic and Latino Heritage Month

Hispanic and Latino Heritage Month: Celebrate and Educate, September 15 - October 15 

Hispanics and Latinos have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. The terms Hispanic and Latino refer to individuals of Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish cultures or origins, regardless of race. Today, 57.5 million people, or 18% of the total American population, are of Hispanic and Latino origin.


Share in this special annual tribute by learning about and celebrating the generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have influenced and enriched our nation and society.
