Heritage Events

Gateway will celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. 

Is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. The LGBT History Month celebration at Gateway will provide information about the contributions of the LGBT community. It also coincides with National Coming Out Day  on October 11th.

Gateway will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the third Monday of every January. This federal holiday, which is King's birthday, honors his legacy and shines a light on civil rights. We will celebrate with a day of service and reflection.

Black History Month is celebrated each February to celebrate the achievements of African Americans in history. Gateway will reflect on this history with guest speakers, programs, and events.

Gateway will celebrate Women’s History month in march by hosting the “Sister Circle Conference”. We will invite young women from across the region to celebrate the accomplishments made by women in history, discover women in the region who have made a difference in the community, and showcase programs and resources at Gateway.
