Why is Hispanic Heritage Month celebrated across 2 months?

Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends on October for 15 for a very good reason! On September 15 in 1821, five Central American countries declared independence from Spain on this date.

1. Guatemala (my personal favorite, LOL)

2. Honduras

3. Costa Rica

4. Nicaragua

5. El Salvador

On September 16 in 1810, Mexico declared independence from Spain (not on Cinco de Mayo, that celebrates a battle victory) and Chile followed on September 18, 1810

Why is Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrated?

Throughout U.S. history the story of Latinx people have not had equal representation, this includes the struggle for equal rights. Many members of Latinx communities have expericed systemic racism, social injustice, discrimination, and at times brutality. It's time to change the conversation and include everyone equally.
