Latino/a Heritage Month
Latino/a Heritage Month started in the 1960s to commemorate Mexico’s independence, U.S. citizenship and Puerto Rico's Independence Day. All month long, we recognize and celebrate the contributions of the Latino/a community in the U.S., past and present.
All month long, UI hosts leaders from around the globe to speak about their experiences in civic engagement, political empowerment and advocating for human rights.
