This episode focuses on celebrating and honoring Hispanic/LatinX voices in the community. Hispanic/LatinX Heritage month is from Sept 15 - Oct 15. It originated as a week long celebration that changed to a month about 20 years later. It starts Sept 15 which is independence day for 5 latin American countries. The 16th is Mexico’s Independence Day, Chile on the 18th and Belize on the 21st. We have three Hispanic/LatinX panelists today joining us to share about their background and ways we can celebrate, honor, and learn not just during this month long celebration, yet all year.
