Our student, staff, and community committee came together to decide on what we wanted to use as our message and theme for the year.

“Vivir Mi Vida” was chosen because we want our stories to be heard right here, right now! All year we will be centering the voices of the present moment and living our lives out loud 🌴🥳

History of Latinx Heritage Month

From September 15 to October 15 the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill celebrates Latinx Heritage Month. This event recognizes the contributions made by Latinx Americans to the United States and celebrates their heritage and cultures. Latinx people have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, hard work, service, and religious values. Latinxs have enhanced and shaped our national character with their traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multinational customs.

In 2010, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill began hosting events throughout the month to celebrate the Latinx community. The month-long celebration includes annual events, such as a kick-off celebration, a distinguished keynote speaker, and Carnaval, a student-led show showcase. Other events vary per year and may include guest lectures, dance lessons, and discussions about current political issues.
