Hispanic Heritage Appreciation Month

ITE Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 – October 15

National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. The date was selected in recognition of the independence days shared by El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Now commonly referred to as Latino History Month – or the gender-neutral Latinx History Month – this celebration of the culture, history, and people of Latin America, as well as the impact of Latin America and Latin Americans in the United States.  

ITE joins its Hispanic and Latino members in celebrating their rich cultural heritage and many contributions to the transportation industry and the communities they serve, including the following members:
