Los Angeles—Councilmember Cedillo will celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month along with Fwd.us and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office. The celebration will begin with a press conference, followed by a presentation in Council Chambers honoring one immigrant owned business per district.

Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM) is a nationwide effort to gather and share inspirational stories of immigration in America that kicks off in June. The month celebrates our country’s immigrant heritage--stories of individuals, families and communities who have contributed to the unique social fabric of a country whose greatness is fueled by its diversity. By highlighting the intersections of each unique immigrant experience, IHM dispels myths and illuminate how each individual journey has been instrumental to the formation, foundation, and ongoing strength of the United States of America.
