The beginning of October marks the midway point of National Hispanic Heritage Month (NHHM), an event celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The month long period encompasses the independence day celebrations of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile. Here are three ways you can celebrate and put Edgewood's value of Community into practice:
Most importantly, don't stop once NHHM ends on October 15th! There are so many ways to be involved year-round, such as getting connected with a local non-profit like Centro Hispano. Or, look within the Edgewood College community for opportunities--Wingra Weekly/EC Today and the Events section of the Diversity & Inclusion homepage are good places to start!
