Latinx Heritage Month is celebrated and observed annually from September 15th to October 15th in the United States.

Latinx Heritage Month theme flyer. Peach-colored background with two blocks in the center. One block is square colored yellow, and the other is a rectangle colored blue. Shaded and transparent palm trees in the background, and one image of a sun with a face on it. Wordings on the flyer share a quote from Benito Ocasio Martinez, stating, "Gente hay que empezar a preocuparnos menos y a disfrutar mas porque la vida va rapido... ”. The rest of the writing states "Celebrate. Latinx Heritage Month" September 15 - October 15". The writings are in the colors  black, red, orange, and yellow.

The importance of observing the contributions and significance of several Hispanic, Afro-Latinx, and Latinx individuals is to recognize the asset they are to our communities and country. Through praise and acknowledgment of who is the Hispanic, Afro-Latinx, and Latinx community on the Lafayette campus, we all come together.

As a part of our Latinx Heritage Month celebrations, we will be presenting various speakers in our new talk series “Cafe con Leche”, which will highlight Lafayette Latinx figures on various topics. Make sure to add our events to your calendar and take the time to celebrate Latinx Heritage Month 2023.
