In honor of National Hispanic Heritage month, we recognize the ways in which Hispanic Americans have benefitted the country.

We're joined by a U.S. Congressman who will share with us his experience as a Hispanic American in politics and his thoughts on the Hispanic American community.

We're also joined by a panel of guests who will educate our listeners on the contributions that Hispanic Americans have provided to the United States, diminish stereotypes, and discuss the influence on American pop culture.
