Latinx Heritage Month

Latinx Heritage Month started in the 1960s to commemorate Mexico’s independence, U.S. citizenship and Puerto Rico's Independence Day. All month long, we recognize and celebrate the contributions of the Latinx community in the U.S., past and present.

During Latinx Heritage Month, U of I hosts leaders from around the region to speak about their experiences in civic engagement, political empowerment and advocating for human rights.
