Celebrating the Rich Legacy of Hispanic and Latinx Americans at BACR
National Hispanic Heritage Month is a month-long celebration from September 15th to October 15th dedicated to recognizing and honoring the cultural, historical, and societal contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. During this time, communities across the United States have come together to celebrate the rich tapestry of traditions, languages, and legacies of Hispanic and Latinx individuals and their vital role in shaping the nation's identity. It's a time to learn, appreciate, and embrace the diversity that is the hallmark of this vibrant and influential community.
As we draw the curtain on this year's National Hispanic Heritage Month, we take pride in honoring the contributions and resilience of the Hispanic and Latinx communities. In a special closing, we also want to shine a spotlight on the incredible achievements and stories of three dedicated BACR employees whose unwavering commitment and diverse backgrounds have added to the richness of our organization. These remarkable individuals have not only furthered our mission but also exemplified the spirit and strength of Hispanic heritage.
