BOSTON - Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - Mayor Kim Janey today announced the fourth annual City Hall Lighting Ceremony to mark the beginning of National Hispanic Heritage Month, hosted by the City of Boston’s Latinx Employee Resource Group. The citywide, month-long festivity is a celebration of the culture, history and contribution of Latinos to the City.

This year’s event will be hosted both in-person and virtually today from 6:00 -8:00 p.m. on City Hall Plaza or via Zoom: bit.ly/BosLatinx2021. The event will begin with a musical and cultural presentation and will end with remarks from Mayor Janey and City leaders. To kick off the Month, the Mayor will join the City of Boston’s Latinx Employee Resource Group (ERG) to illuminate City Hall. 

“I’m honored to kick off this important and unifying tradition to celebrate Boston’s Latino community,” said Mayor Janey. “The fourth annual lighting for Hispanic Heritage Month symbolizes the strength and vibrancy of the Latino community across Boston’s neighborhoods. I’m looking forward to the many events this month to commemorate Latino contributions to our City.”   

The City of Boston’s Latinx Employee Resource group is made up of over 90 employees from across the globe, including Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Spain. These members take pride in celebrating many cultural opportunities during the year including, Dia de los Muertos, Tres Reyes, and over 15 Independence Day flag-raising celebrations.

“We chose orange because the Latinx community is vibrant and warm. This is our signature event of the year and we invite all of Boston’s Latinx community to join us in celebrating this momentous occasion,” said Natalia Urtubey, the Director of Small Business and Latinx ERG founder and liaison.

In addition to City Hall, other lighting partners include:

·    UMass Boston
