Congressman Chuy García

Back in 1977 when they were called the Spanish Coalition for Jobs, the National Latino Education Institute helped me find a job as a paralegal at the Legal Assistance Foundation of Chicago, which turned out to be a life-changing experience for me. I’m happy they remain a guiding light for our community because their work is more important now than ever. Thank you for presenting me with the Alumni Leadership award and for the significant role you played in my career.

Governor JB Pritzker

It’s an honor to host my first annual Governor’s Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration!

Illinoisans have cultural roots that stem from every corner of the earth, and I’m proud to serve a state that can celebrate so much diversity – including within this community.

This month is a time to give people who call their heritage Hispanic – or Latino, or Latina, or Latinx – a space to embrace their traditions right here in our state – and offer other Illinoisans the opportunity to learn more about our state’s cultural heritage, too.

The history of Latinx and Hispanic Americans in Chicago is long and rich—they form the backbone of strong neighborhoods in our city and across the country. From creating businesses and jobs, and serving in our military, the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic Americans are absolutely immeasurable. Happy National Hispanic Heritage Month.
