Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

September 16, 2021

This month, from September 15 through October 15, we observe Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate, recognize and feature the countless achievements of many Hispanic Americans who have positively impacted and enriched our communities.

Our culture has influenced the entertainment industry, sports, fashion, food, the political landscape, education, science and more with an enormous economic impact worldwide.

I am proud the legislature adopted and included Latino studies in our public high school curriculum beginning in the fall of 2022, allowing for more diversity and inclusion of an integral part of American history.

Please join me in recognizing Hispanic American successes, challenges and stories throughout this month and appreciating their invaluable contributions to society.
