Hispanic Heritage Council of Western New York

Hispanic Heritage Month 2020: Sept 15- Oct 15

We are pleased to announce we will once again present a very special schedule for this year's Hispanic Heritage Month events: Calendar (as a PDF for download or print) & WBBZ Special for HHM. Due to the nature of the current pandemic and to observe appropriate guidelines as set forth by local and state governing bodies, we will have special virtual events through our friends and WNED PBS Ch 17. You can view (or download) a PDF of this schedule HERE.

HHC Statement Regarding Black Lives Matter

The Hispanic Heritage Council of Western New York, Inc. stands together with our Black brothers and sisters in outrage over the murder of George Floyd and the years of systemic racism, violence, and inequity that continue to plague our communities and our country. We empathize and feel the very justified anger and frustration erupting as a result of the heinous crime committed last week and seek to work within our community to find peaceful solutions to address injustice and ways to begin the healing process. Now is a time to stand together against indifference, bigotry, and hatred for the good of all our people.
