The Hispanic and Latinx community has a strong history in the United States, and specifically in California. Their contributions and background have become ingrained in our own culture and society. Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th, coinciding with the date of the independence of several Latin American countries, through October 15th.
During this time Sender One will be offering blogs that showcase how you can celebrate and enjoy the spirit of the Hispanic Culture.
We hope that with this list of events you will be able to discover something new about Hispanic history and connect with people from across Southern California!
