Hispanic Heritage Month celebration hosted at Milwaukee City Hall
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A cultural celebration to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month in Milwaukee was held at city hall today, on Sept. 16.
Entitled "Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation 2022" -- the event celebrated heritage, culture and offered the public a chance to learn more about city services.
Kevin Kuschel is the co-chair of Avanzando MKE, an employee resource group serving the Hispanic community.
He says the theme of today's kick off, "Unity", sums up what the Latino community is all about.
"We want people to know that we have been, that the Latino population in the city of Milwaukee has historically, and continues to contribute to this city, and that's the importance of this; recognition, and that we are all one people looking to make Milwaukee a better place," said Kevin Kuschel, co-chair of Avanzando MKE.
The event featured guest speakers, performers, an art display and food trucks outside of city hall. We can expect more HHM events all month long through Oct. 15.
