Hispanic Heritage Month
We celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 thru October 15 to recognize the achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success.
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15.
It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
Stay tuned for the 2021 theme of Hispanic Heritage Month feature "Esperanza: A celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope."
