A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month: What You Missed

Hispanic Heritage Month takes place from September 15th to October 15th every year, and every year the nation honors the rich heritage of the countries and islands that make up the vast Latinx community. But at Hoboken Girl, we choose to celebrate the community every day, all year round, which is why in addition to the articles we wrote in tribute to the month, we have also re-shared some of our other articles that were published throughout the year. From local Latin restaurants to non-profits to books to small businesses and life stories, below is a look at our recap of Latinx-focused articles to finish this 2020’s Hispanic Heritage Month on a positive note. And while this is a month dedicated to highlighting the amazing accomplishments of local Latinx residents and business owners, make sure to support these businesses all year round. Here are the stories:
