“Comunidad. Together We Progress. Together We Shine.” This is the theme of the 2021 National Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States, the period of time spanning Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. With an over 50 year history, it’s a time to celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Americans while uplifting the culture and advancements they contribute to society.
Lesser-celebrated, is the fact that the principles of sharing, environmental stewardship, and familial cooperation are both evident and deeply embedded into many Latinx cultures. We at Shareable take pride in honoring the histories and practices of the vast communities of readers that we serve.
That’s why this Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re shining light onto a remarkable group of Latinx-led cooperatives that are paving the way for advancements in their own communities while enriching the landscape of the sharing economy as a whole.
