American GI Forum of Texas, Inc. Report: CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – On Sunday October 13, 2019, the American G. I. Forum (AGIF), Beatrice T. Perez (BTP) Robstown Women’s Chapter will host the unveiling bus wrap ceremony with the theme: “The Power of Hispanic Leadeship” on the Domingo Live Show (on Sunday, October 13, 2019 between 10:30 AM – Noon). Our Keynote speaker will be Robstown City Manager Herman Rodriguez.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15 each year to show awareness of the history, culture and contributions of American citizens whose ancestry originates from any one of the Latino countries is celebrated.
"As children, we were all taught about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Betsy Ross, and other historical figures and facts that contributed to the early history of America. This not only taught us the history of our country and forefathers; but instilled in every one of us an unwavering loyalty and patriotism to America. However, through the omission of our culture and contribution of our ancestors, we all suffered varying degrees of a disconnect from this history that was otherwise intended to be relatable." Beatrice T. Perez Chapter chairwoman Leslie Cristan stated.
