Hispanic Heritage Month is always a fun time for us. It’s a great chance to celebrate with our friends as they celebrate their heritage and the independence of the countries they or their ancestors left to come to the United States. It’s also fun because we get to collaborate with GobiernoUSA.gov, the official Spanish language portal of the US Government, to engage and celebrate Hispanic Americans across the country. This year, GobiernoUSA.gov is asking people to share photos that describe the diversity and pride of Hispanic Americans through Twitter and on their Facebook. page.
People have already been sharing moments of hispanic pride on GobiernoUSA.gov’s Facebook page. We’ve received photos of a quinceañera, a family reunion, el grito mexicano, and photos of simple gatherings with friends. It’s heartwarming to see simple photos that communicate the pride of family, patriotism, and love of life that bring hispanics of all backgrounds together in the United States.
I’d like to invite you to join in and share your photos, too. It’s easy, quick, and fun. Here’s how to do it:
- Visit GobiernoUSA.gov’s Facebook page: http://facebook.com/GobiernoUSA
- Click on “Photos”
- Click on “Upload a Photo” and select your photo
- Describe the photo and hit Share
- Send a public message to @GobiernoUSA that contains a link to your photo.
- That’s it!
Once you’ve shared your photos, invite your friends to do the same!
Throughout the rest of Hispanic Heritage Month, GobiernoUSA.gov will highlight photos by reposting them on their Facebook page and re-tweeting them on Twitter—perhaps they’ll highlight one of yours!
