2022 Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month
Posted on 09/27/2022
The AASD Diversity Equity and Inclusion Department is pleased to share our activities for National Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month! This year's celebration offers various opportunities for you to join in on the fun.

Since 1968 Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month has been celebrated to recognize the rich culture and contributions of Americans who trace their roots to Mexico, Central America, South America, The Caribbean, and Spain.

Kicking off the month-long celebration on September 15th each year is of great significance because it is the anniversary date of the independence of countries in Latin America; Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico celebrates its independence on the 16th.
