From September 15 until October 15, we recognize the numerous contributions that individuals of Hispanic origin have made within our nation by celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month. In acknowledging the positive impact that generations of Hispanics have brought to American society and culture, we hope to bring light to the benefits of diversity and cultural competence, which are core tenets of effective social work practice.
The theme for Hispanic Heritage Month is “One endless voice to enhance our traditions,” which draws upon the similarities and differences of Hispanic nationalities, as well as the importance of traditions, history, and culture in examining the past, present, and future.
