Wasserman Schultz Statement on Hispanic Heritage Month

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Today we celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, an annual observance between September 15th and October 15 to celebrate and honor the achievements of the Hispanic community.

Hispanic heritage is a fundamental part of the American story. All of our histories are intertwined – from the beginnings of our nation to today, generations of Hispanics have contributed to our country’s success, bringing pieces of their culture, traditions, art, and language along the way.

As a Floridian, this is a familiar history, one that has helped make our district and the entire state such a remarkable place to live, work and play.

Now, more than ever, it is important that we celebrate Hispanic heritage and culture and recognize those whose hard work continues to strengthen our nation.
