ABOUT NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover the 30-day period from September 15 through October 15. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.
Each March, ELEVATE offers a Day of Programming, Tools and Workshops for being NICER - to our mind, body, soul, planet & others.
BEING A BETTER PERSON - through what we eat, how we take care of ourselves, how we treat ourselves and how we treat others.
