Throughout the month, we profiled young people from all across the Latino community. Watch this mini-documentary to see what they had to say about embracing their heritage!
WHAT IS RISE?
Hispanic Heritage Month falls annually between September 15th and October 15th, a month that celebrates Latinx culture and heritage. R.I.S.E. (Register. Ignite. Strive. Engage), formerly Hispanic Heritage Month of Action, is a one of a kind on-the-ground and digital voter registration campaign that seeks to shift this cultural celebration to a month of action around voter registration and community organizing.
