Honoring Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month from September 15 – October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of people with origins in Spain, Mexico, most countries in Central and South America, and several countries in the Caribbean.

September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also,  Día de la Raza, which is Oct. 12, falls within this 30-day period.

There are many different ways people celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month, including attending parades, trying foods and talking to others to learn about their culture and traditions. Our internal DEI council is leading the way for Mx’ers to participate in the celebration. Explore the resources the council compiled below to learn more about the Hispanic and Latinx communities, and the impact these artists, writers, and musicians have had on American culture.

Books: Children of the Land: A Memoir by Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Tell Me How it Ends: An Essay in 40 Questions by Valeria Luiselli, In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez, Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.

Day of Learning

The Mx Group continued with our tradition to honor Juneteenth with our Day of Learning event. Mx’ers gathered together for a virtual, interactive event led by people at HELM Life. During our time together, we solved puzzles and played games that revealed important information about the history of Juneteenth. We then participated in group discussions about the importance of the holiday and the enduring legacy of Black culture in the United States.

Day of Service

On January 17th, we honored Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. with our company-wide Day of Service.

This event is an opportunity for everyone at The Mx Group to unite as an organization for a “day on, not a day off.” This year, we collaborated with charitable organizations in the Chicagoland area and identified what specialized services would benefit them most. The charities included organizations that aid underserved youth, disadvantaged children, veterans, domestic abuse survivors and more.

These are just a few of the examples of how we spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day serving our communities by offering a range of pro bono marketing services in addition to traditional volunteer activities.

Our day kicked off with a company-wide virtual event where we heard about the opportunities for the day across the company and heard from two of our pro bono organization leaders.
