feliz mes de la herencia hispana
Together, we celebrate the 45th Anniversary of Latino/Latina Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 – October 15, 2022, a fiesta for all Americans to express appreciation for Latino/Latina contributions and culture.
The beauty of the Hispanic culture in the United States is that Latinos and Latinas come from many backgrounds, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central and South American, a diverse people group whose common heritage emphasizes family, friends and faith.
So, as we do things to celebrate the joys of our Hispanic cultures during these 30 days, let us think of ways to say healthy and strong. Be engaged with things that maintain physical, mental, spiritual, and sexual health.
