Each year, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of community members whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America–from all communities that identify as Hispanic. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402. At Monday night’s meeting, the City Council will present a resolution recognizing National Hispanic Heritage Month.
