Celebrating Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrating Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month

October 7, 2022 - We're nearing the end of National Hispanic Heritage Month.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15.

Why September 15 - October 15? The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.

We’re highlighting proud AFA Members like Johanna and Majo from Alaska AFA, and Bruce from Norse AFA.
