TITLE
RESOLUTION DECLARING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER AS NICARAGUAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH

BODY
WHEREAS, Nicaraguan-Americans constitute one of the largest Hispanic communities in Miami-Dade County, thereby contributing to the cultural diversity and richness of the County; and
WHEREAS, the month of September is of particular historical relevance to the Nicaraguan-Americans in Miami-Dade County because Miami-Dade County’s immigrant population from Nicaragua began its rapid growth in September of 1972, following an earthquake in Managua, Nicaragua; and
WHEREAS, the Board desires to declare the month of September as Nicaraguan-American Heritage Month and to encourage observance of the month with appropriate exhibitions, ceremonies, celebrations, and activities,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board declares the month of September as Nicaraguan-American Heritage Month in order to encourage observance of the month with appropriate exhibitions, ceremonies, celebrations, and activities to recognize and honor the heritage, accomplishments, and contributions of Nicaraguan-Americans to our community.
