The Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino strives to create a museum in our nation’s capital to educate, inspire and encourage respect and understanding of the richness and diversity of the American Latino experience within the U.S. and its territories. By highlighting the contributions made by Latino icons, pioneers and communities to the American way of life we are all better able to truly understand what makes our nation great.
Our speaker, Estuardo Rodriguez, President and CEO of the Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, is an engaging and eloquent advocate for creating a museum to educate, inspire and encourage respect and understanding of the richness and diversity of the American Latino experience within the U.S. and its territories. This effort is steadily making progress toward the Latino Museum becoming a reality. The Friends website is https://americanlatinomuseum.org/
