[from] September 15 to October 15 is the National Hispanic Heritage Month. The Greater Los Angeles Area Council joins in paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.

National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors Hispanic and Latino Americans’ cultures and contributions as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.  During this month, we share the history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans.
