This Hispanic Heritage Month, we celebrate the richness of Hispanic and Latinx communities and want to ensure that diverse voices are represented and welcomed to help build a stronger firm, stronger outcomes for clients and communities, and a stronger world.
Pride Month is celebrated each year during the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the U.S. and quickly became a symbol of resistance to social and political discrimination across the world.
Like most commemorative months, Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month originated in the U.S. with Congress. President Jimmy Carter signed Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week into law in 1978. The observance was expanded to a month in 1990.
