This Friday September 15 CBS News Colorado will re-launch a series of reports on our broadcast and streaming channels called Elevating Latino Voices in celebration of the month recognizing our neighbors whose ancestors came from Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America and Spain.
According to the Library of Congress, the September 15 to October 15 period was selected because "it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period."
We've compiled a list of events coming up to celebrate Latino culture.
