We host our annual Latinx Heritage Month celebration from September 15 to October 15, and we would love for you to join us! During National Hispanic Heritage Month, the U.S. recognizes the important presence of Latin American immigrants and celebrates their heritage and culture. At NC State, we name the celebration Latinx Heritage Month to be more inclusive of the experiences and identities of our students, staff and community. We also take this time to recognize the present issues facing our people and the future of what it means to be Latinx.
 
Our theme this year centers current realities of being a young Latinx person in the US. We want to share our experiences and LatinXsistence! 
 
Join us this fall, more information to be released soon. If you have any questions please reach out to Marcela Torres Cervantes via email at matorres@ncsu.edu

Please check our calendar for the latest LHM events for the month.
