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

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.
