Dear Somos Primos readers.
Other than Somos Primos notification, this is the first time that I have sent out a letter to readers. I do this because of the importance and potential of finally giving good historical visibility of our Hispanic/Latino heritage in Washington, DC.
Attached is information concerning a Commission to Study the Potential Creation of a National Museum of the American Latino Community Act of 2005.
It will be voted on March 30th.
It was sent by Rep. Javier Becerra, Democrat from California. Historical inclusion is a nonpartisan issue.
The creation of a National Museum of the American Latino would finally present out history where awareness is critical, in Washington, D.C.
Please contact the Representatives from your state and send this information to all your friends, organizations, co-workers, etc. Ask them all to contact their representatives. The list of co-sponsors are included.
Please act quickly. Let your Representative know that your history, our history. . . . matters.
Hopeful for positive changes . . .
