“Out of Many One”

Welcome to our blog! We are excited that you’ve decided to connect with the National Museum of the American Latino Commission online. We’ll use this platform to keep you up to date on all of the Commission’s latest activities.
As you may know, we recently wrapped up the Commission’s nationwide public listening tour and are scheduled to exhibit at several Hispanic advocacy group national conferences.
We just arrived to beautiful San Antonio, Texas, home of the Alamo and the Riverwalk, where we’ll spend the next couple of days interacting and meeting many of you at the National Council of la Raza’s (NCLR) (the largest Hispanic advocacy group in the United States), 2010 Annual Conference at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
We’re are thrilled to be an exhibitor at the Convention to introduce more Americans to the Commission and to gather more public input about the possible creation of a National American Latino Museum on the national mall in Washington, D.C. The Commission’s interactive booth is setup at the NCLR Latino Family Expo where well over 20,000 people are expected to visit (the Expo is open to the general public).
If you’re in the area, we’d really like to meet you. The Expo’s Grand Opening is tomorrow, Saturday, July 10th at 10am. Come to booth 635 until Monday, July 12th and experience the Commission’s interactive kiosk.
Attendees that visit our booth will be able to record a short video about your thoughts of the creation of a Latino museum in our nation’s capital and send it to your friends, family and colleagues anywhere around the world. If you can’t make it visit us online at mylatinomuseum.org to stay up to date on all the exciting activities.
Let your voice be heard. Be a part of history.
