Bring American Latino History and Contributions to the Smithsonian: Co-sponsor The National Museum of the American Latino Act

We invite you to co-sponsor H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will reach 119
million, or nearly 30 percent of the population. Latinos also account for 25 percent of the nation’s 54 million K-12 students in 2016, up from 16 percent in 2000. This young, vibrant, and growing community not only represents the future, but are also the largest
and fastest growing racial or ethnic group in the country. Yet, Latinos continue to face systemic under-representation in nearly every facet of American life, including the arts and cultural institutions.

Support Apprentices: Cosponsor the Promoting Apprentices in Public Service Act

Please join me in cosponsoring the Promoting Apprentices in Public Service Act. As you know, there are currently 585,000 apprentices developing the critical skills necessary to compete in a 21st Century economy. Apprentices that successfully complete an
