Hispanic Heritage Month

As part of National Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated annually from September 15 - October 15, RACVB is continuing to honor the histories, cultures, contributions, and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements in the United States. And in that spirit, we want to shine a light on some of our region's Hispanic leaders as part of the GoRockford Hispanic Heritage Interview Series.
