We celebrate our community’s cultural diversity, the beautiful traditions of Latin American countries, and the contributions Hispanics have made to American society. The national commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month began with a weeklong observance, started in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson. Twenty years later, President Ronald Reagan expanded the observation to September 15 - October 15, a month-long period that includes several Latin American countries’ anniversaries of independence.
