Observing Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15th marks the beginning of the observation of Hispanic Heritage Month, a national celebration of the heritage and culture of Latinos in the United States and their contributions to the nation. I am a cosponsor of the Senate resolution which officially commemorates this celebration.

Throughout American history Latino Americans have risen above many challenges to break new ground in this country. I am proud to have the opportunity to commemorate the achievements of Latinos in Pennsylvania and across the country. I also pledge to continue working with the Latino community to achieve our mutual goals and priorities.

I encourage all Pennsylvanians to visit http://www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov to learn more about the many contribution and accomplishments of the Latino community.
