Today marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Hispanic Heritage Month began in 1968 as a single week of remembrance, honoring the contributions of the Latinx community amidst the tail-end of the civil rights movement. Its official declaration as a 31-day observation began in 1988.
To kick off this month of commemoration for the Hispanic community, we decided to highlight four local Indiana Hispanic-owned businesses.
Glocal Cleaning LLC provides professional commercial cleaning and general labor services to the Indianapolis area. In partnership with Migros Aid, Inc., they offer mentorship to young people within refugee and immigrant communities.
