LITTLE ROCK, AR –Republican Party of Arkansas (RPA) Chairman Jonelle Fulmer issued the following statement regarding the commencement of Hispanic Heritage Month, which is observed each year from September 15 through October 15.
“The RPA is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which marks the independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Chile, Mexico, and Nicaragua.
