Daniel Garza. President of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following statement:

“Today as always, it’s appropriate to salute America’s Latinos for what they do to make our nation a success. We are workers, families, veterans, teachers, people of faith, and so much more. And we love our country.

 

This year’s celebration marks 50 years since the first commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Week, and 30 years since President Reagan first observed Hispanic Heritage Month. Ever since The LIBRE Initiative was founded, our team has been pleased to partner with community organizations in places around the country to deliver services that help our community to prosper, and to contribute more to the country we love. It’s gratifying to highlight those contributions for one month each year.”
