Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month

 From September 15-October 15 Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month is celebrated in the US.  The dates coincide with  national independence days in Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Mexico.

Here are a few resources I have found helpful:
