Tomorrow marks the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15). And while we believe celebrating the rich cultural diversity and achievements of Latinx people should happen all year round (here are dozens of kids books to help with that!), it’s also a wonderful time to shine a spotlight on mothers of Latinx heritage right now.

Recently, HBO Max Pa’lante—the Latinx social hub for HBO Max—debuted the second installament of the “Are You Listening?” series, highlighting 5 mothers (including a mother-daughter duo), who discussed a variety of topics, from growing up Latinx to how they are carrying on cultural traditions with their own children.

You can watch the beautiful and poignant video on YouTube, and meet some of the mamas featured—as well as some of their quotes from the cutting-room floor—in our slideshow below!
