Coalition Challenges Capitol Hill To Move Museum Bill This Year
We went to Congress to urge passage of the Smithsonian American Latino Museum Act!
Last week, we gathered our board members and the former Commissioners from the Commission to Study the Potential Creation of a National Museum of the American Latino for a day of advocacy and action on Capitol Hill.
The national leaders of the campaign which include representatives from Silicon Valley, national political strategists and academic and museum experts met with members of Congress including Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV); Senator Dean Heller (R-NV); Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, Xavier Becerra (D-CA-34); Chair of the Asian Pacific American Caucus, Judy Chu (D-CA-27); bill cosponsor, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL-27); Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Conference, Mario Diaz Balart (R-FL-25); and Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA-03). Our message was clear, we must pass the Smithsonian American Latino Museum Act this year!
Now Congress needs to hear from you! Go to our website to find the tools you need to reach your representative and encourage them to support our campaign.
