Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs (GACLA) Executive Director Luz Coln was joined by Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Noe Ortega, State Representative Manny Guzman and GACLA Commissioner Delma Lytle-Rivera to officially recognize the start of Hispanic Heritage Month 2021 in Pennsylvania with remarks and the reading of Governor Tom Wolf’s proclamation.
The theme for this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month is “Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope.” The theme invites us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage and to reflect on how great our tomorrow can be if we hold onto our resilience and hope. It encourages us to reflect on all of the contributions Hispanics have made in the past and will continue to make in the future. It is also a reminder that we are stronger together.
