Heritage Months and Observances

What Are Heritage Months?

In the United States, Heritage Months are periods within the year that are designated to celebrate and acknowledge various ethnic and marginalized groups. These are times to celebrate and educate others on various groups’ histories and contributions to American History. These are also important opportunities that help us understand our own cultures and identities as well as the cultures of others. If you are already planning an event for an upcoming heritage month, please let us know
