Why Hispanic Heritage Month matters more than ever

National Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins each year on Sept. 15, celebrates U.S. Latinos, their culture and their history. The celebration begins in the middle rather than the start of September because it coincides with national independence days in several Latin American countries.

Hispanic people are the largest minority in the United States. In 2019, about 60.5 million people of Hispanic origin were living in the U.S. By 2060, it is projected that the Hispanic population will reach the 111.22 million mark, a significant factor in U.S. population growth. As of 2019, about 13.17 million families of Hispanic descent were residing in the United States.
