Mano a Mano recognizes National Hispanic Heritage Month

As National Hispanic Heritage Month ends, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize that Mano a Mano would not exist if there was not a vast and wholly diverse Hispanic/Latino/Latinx population in the United States spread throughout all areas of our nation both urban and rural as well as our constituents in Puerto Rico.  We serve and represent a minority of a minority and we want to take this time to acknowledge that our work does not exist in a vacuum that’s separated from the intersectionality of the various communities we are striving to represent: Deaf and Hard of Hearing; Hispanic/Latino/Latinx; Spanish Speakers; Sign Language Interpreters; and countless others. I also want to take the time to encourage our members to become involved with Mano by running for a seat on our board in the upcoming election.  You should have already received a letter from our Nominations committee, but if you didn’t please visit our website or reach out to by October 25th to get more information!

Please give the following video a watch featuring members of the Mano a Mano executive board expressing why our Hispanic heritage is important to us!

A todos los miembros de Mano a Mano,

Como es el fin del mes nacional de la herencia hispana, quisiera yo aprovechar la oportunidad de reconocer que Mano a Mano no existiera sin la extensa y diversa población de herencia latina/latinx/hispana en EEUU y Puerto Rico.  Sabemos que el alcance hispano llega a todos las esquinas de nuestro país, que sea rural o urbana.  Sabemos que representamos y servimos a una minoría de una minoría y entendemos que no obramos en un vacío apartado de la interseccionalidad y diversidad de nuestras identidades: Sordo/hipoacúsico; hispano/latinx/latino; hispanohablante; intérpretes; entre varias otras.  Quisiera animar a nuestros miembros a involucrarse con Mano por presentarse en la próxima elección para ser un representante en nuestra junta.  Si no ha recibido la información del comité de nominaciones, por favor visite nuestro sitio web o envíe un correo electrónico a para recibir más información o nominarse o nominar a otra persona!

¡El siguiente video contiene algunos miembros de la junta ejecutiva de Mano hablando de la importancia de su herencia hispana!
