National Hispanic Heritage Month kicks off today! 🌶💃🏻🌮 September 15th marks the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza falls on October 12th.
Given our political climate, it appears even more crucial to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
But let's also not forget to recognize ALL immigrants whose generations have and continue to contribute and positively influence and enrich our nation and society.
