Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) joined a bipartisan Senate resolution to formally recognize Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated from September 15 through October 15th.
“Hispanic Heritage Month is an important time to recognize our community’s rich traditions and celebrate the impact we have had across the country. Latinos have long shaped Nevada’s story. We have deep roots here. I’m so proud of my heritage, and I’m especially honored to be the first Latina in the United States Senate. I look forward to seeing more Latinos in elected office to bring our voices and valuable perspectives to the table.”
