Latinas ¡Presente!

2016

September is important for Latinas/os and Latin Americans, as Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence during this month. In the US, Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month has for decades officially honored their histories, cultures and contributions. Here at Mills, Latina Heritage Month has for years honored Chicanas and Latinas every September through a diverse, month-long series of cultural, social, and timeline community events that particularly celebrate our indigenous, African, immigrant, and activist roots. Unless otherwise noted, all events are free and open to the public.
