Governor Sisolak celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – September 28, 2021

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month at the 2021 United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Conference, where he spoke during the closing ceremony.

“Nevada could not be more proud to host a national organization like this that actively promotes the economic growth, development, and interests of more than 4.7 million Hispanic-owned businesses that contributed more than $800 billion to the American economy every year. There’s no better time to be here in the State of Nevada than during Hispanic Heritage Month,” the Governor said. “In Nevada, diversity is our strength. And I don’t say that lightly – I truly mean it. Almost 30 percent of our population identifies as Hispanic or Latino. We are the fifth largest State in that regard.”
