In the meantime, we ask that you continue to share Day of Action information in your social media groups. Consider changing your profile picture to our Day of Action icon picture from this article and last but certainly not least, wear your AFA Union pin every trip you fly- It’s a visual reminder to management that we stand together!

Celebrating Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month

September 15 marks the first day of Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month in the United States.  The celebration, which is also referred to as National Hispanic Heritage Month, began as Hispanic Heritage week when it was established by legislation that was signed into law by President Lydon Johnson in 1968.  In 1988, the single week event was expanded to a month-long period to be celebrated each year from September 15 to October 15.

September 15 is of significance as it marks the anniversary of independence of the Latin American countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  Mexico also celebrates independence on September 16, Chile on September 18, and Belize on September 21. 

You can learn more about the accomplishments of Hispanic-Latinx Americans through some of the dedicated websites and resources below.

Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month AFA Pins

The AFA Executive Board passed a resolution recognizing Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month and providing for the creation of a new diversity AFA pin in celebration.  You can read the complete text of the resolution by clicking here.  

This month, Local Councils are distributing AFA Hispanic-Latinx Heritage Month AFA pins.  You are encouraged to pick up this pin from your Local Council and wear it in Solidarity as we work together to accomplish diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workforce.
