Representative Adriano Espaillat Recognizes National Hispanic Heritage Month


Hispanic Heritage Month is recognized from September 15 to October 15, 2021, and is a month-long celebration honoring the culture and contributions of Hispanics and our impacts on American society.

Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) released the following statement in recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month:

"Hispanic heritage is American heritage, and I'm proud to mark the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month for 2021. From our contributions to the arts and entertainment, medical science and technology, business and education, government and serving in our nation's Armed Forces, our people play a significant role in shaping this nation and our future in it," said Rep. Espaillat.

"While we have made significant progress in our efforts to achieve the American dream, there is much work that still lies ahead. As we honor and celebrate the contributions of our Hispanic communities during National Hispanic Heritage Month, we continue to stand united in our fight to keep families together and provide a pathway to citizenship for our nation's over 11 million undocumented immigrants - especially our Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status holders, farmworkers, and essential workers.

"We stand firm in our commitment to repair our nation's broken immigration system, and we stand together to ensure America remains a beacon of hope, freedom and opportunity for all.”
