September 15th marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, which is a time to celebrate Hispanic and Latinx/o/a American culture and heritage. It is also a celebration of the countless contributions made to our society by more than 60 million Hispanic Americans. Hispanic Americans are the largest minority group in the United States today, and for generations they have helped make our country strong and prosperous.
