Mayor Walsh illuminates City Hall for Hispanic Heritage Month

Join Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the City of Boston's Latinx Employee Resource Group (ERG) for a public event lighting up City Hall to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month!

Flags of our heritage come in every color. The Latinx ERG collectively chose orange because it is a vibrant color, just like our heritage — orange is also associated with meanings of joy, warmth, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, change, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, freedom, expression, and wonder.

We invite you to join us at 6:00 for a short program and the lighting at 7:30pm. Stick around after the lighting for a group photo with Mayor Martin J. Walsh!

Please be sure to wear orange!
