National Hispanic Heritage Month, also known as LatinX Heritage Month, is celebrated each year in the United States from Sept. 15th through Oct. 15th. It celebrates the cultural heritage and achievements of Hispanic-Americans (i.e. those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America). This year’s theme is Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation. Communities across the nation will celebrate in various ways. For listings of celebrations in your area, check your local college and university campuses, your children’s schools and local news stations.
