Hispanic Heritage Month

October is National Hispanic Heritage Month - a time to recognize the contributions of Hispanic people and celebrate their diverse cultures and histories. Hispanic people are those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean or Central and South America. This national celebration has taken place from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 since 1988.

This year, CORE has put together a list of ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in your own time. Below, you’ll find a variety of local events, bakeries, websites and books that celebrate Hispanic history and culture. And be sure to visit the CORE ERG table at the  SLAC Safety and Security Fair to pick up a Hispanic Heritage Month sticker.
