Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: September 5, 2019 02:26 PM
From: Senator Christine M. Tartaglione
To: All Senate members
Subject: Hispanic Heritage Month
In the near future, I intend to introduce a resolution that designates September 15 through October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month in Pennsylvania, in recognition of the many achievements of Hispanic Americans throughout the Commonwealth and in celebration of the rich culture they have added to this country.

The U.S. has acknowledged the contributions of Hispanic Americans in our Nation through a federal proclamation Since 1988. Hispanics represent over 800,000 residents in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is the largest and fastest growing minority ethnic group in the United States.

The Hispanic community has made a profound and positive influence on our Commonwealth through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community.

This resolution encourages all Pennsylvanians to celebrate the diversity and rich culture that make our Commonwealth and nation so extraordinary by proclaiming September 15th through October 15th as Hispanic Heritage Month in Pennsylvania. I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this resolution.
