Good Community: Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

FarBridge
3 min readSep 27, 2023

When we started the Good Community blog series it was our goal to highlight organizations that follow our same values: sharing knowledge of the games industry and striving to create a welcoming environment and community. It’s important to us to both share everything we’ve learned and incorporate it to make FarBridge a place where folks want to work.

It is currently National Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States, observed from September 15 to October 15, which celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of people whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

For this month’s #GoodCommunity blog, we’re highlighting organizations and resources to help keep our communities thriving.
