Pete Sessions Statement on National Hispanic Heritage Month
Today I released the following statement regarding the commencement of National Hispanic Heritage Month, honored September 15 – October 15:
This month I proudly join my fellow Texans and Americans in honoring National Hispanic Heritage Month. During this month we have the opportunity to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have enriched our communities with their generous culture and invaluable contributions to our society.
From the arts, to service in the military, to their strong presence in the business community, Hispanic Americans have made an immense impact on the Texas community and our nation as a whole. The foundation of our great nation was built upon the contributions of individuals with dynamic and diverse cultural backgrounds and I am proud to celebrate their continued contributions that strengthen our country.
