Inspiration comes in all forms.
This month, inspiration is front and center as the official theme of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Todos Somos. Todos Uno. We are all. We are one.
Hispanic Heritage Month is a special time to highlight the histories and achievements of Hispanic/Latino/LatinX Americans whose heritage is rooted in 20 Latin American countries.
The national observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting September 15 and ending October 15 of each year.
It was enacted into law 35 years ago.
At DPPL, we are promoting the beautiful artwork of Boris A. Jiron, a management analyst in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
He describes his poster design as representing the unity and integration of Hispanic culture embracing each other as one.
The National Council of Hispanic Employment Program Managers selected his design to portray the month’s theme Todos Somos, Somos Uno – We Are All, We Are One.
Stop by the 3rd and 4th floors and check out the displays.
