We proudly celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month! This annual observance, spanning from September 15th to October 15th, pays tribute to the rich and diverse cultural contributions of Hispanic and Latinx communities in the United States. Throughout this month, we honor the traditions, history, and achievements of Hispanic Americans who have shaped our nation in countless ways. Join us in recognizing their vital role in shaping the tapestry of American society and their ongoing contributions to our vibrant, multicultural landscape.

Equity is at the core of the Greater Topeka Partnership’s Momentum 2027 Strategy. It is embraced by every partner including the Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce, Visit Topeka, Downtown Topeka, Inc., and GO Topeka. It is an intentional practice in all of our internal and external initiatives.
