Hispanic Heritage Month

This month puts a national spotlight on what we do every day: celebrate everything Latinos contribute to U.S. society and culture.

Hispanic heritage is American heritage.

More than 60 million of us live in the United States, enriching American history, culture, and the economy every single day.

Our vision for America is a country where all people, including Latinos, have equal access to opportunity. To break down the barriers that keep that from happening, our contributions have to be recognized.

Latinos embody the American Dream every day: working hard to beat the odds and achieve more than what we were given. Though we’re proud of those success stories, no one should have to beat the odds. By removing the barriers we face, everyone is able to thrive.
