The 2022 Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration is coordinated by GACLA and supported by various state agencies.

“The Wolf Administration has dedicated itself to embracing the idea that inclusion, understanding and acceptance are the foundation that we must build upon to unite the commonwealth’s communities and make them stronger,” said Luz B. Colón, executive director, GACLA. “As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage, we must remember that contributions of the Hispanic culture and all cultures, are truly what makes our state’s and nation’s history rich and our communities vibrant.”

Featured speakers for the event are Pennsylvania State Department of Aging Secretary Robert Torres, Department of General Services Acting Secretary Joe Lee, Office of Administration Director of Equal Employment Opportunity Jacqueline Jackson-DeGarcia, Department of Community and Economic Development Chief Diversity Officer Norman Bristol Colón and Pennsylvania State Representative Danilo Burgos.
