State Reps Honor Hispanic Heritage Month


State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

State Representative Phil Young (D)
120th Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

From September 15 to October 15 we observe Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate, recognize, and feature the countless achievements of the many Hispanic Americans who have positively impacted and enriched our communities.

Their rich culture has influenced the entertainment industry, sports, fashion, food, politics, education, science, and more with an enormous worldwide economic impact.

The legislature adopted the inclusion of Latino studies in our public high school curriculum beginning in the fall of 2022. I believe the curriculum will add an integral part of American history to student studies.

Please join us in recognizing the successes, challenges, and stories of Hispanic Americans this month and their invaluable contributions to our culture.

As always, please feel free to reach out to us at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email us at
