We need a National American Latino Museum

The contributions of American Latinos to this nation date back to even before its creation, and we are committed to rightfully honoring those stories with a national institution. Currently there are over 50.5 million Americans of Latino descent in this country, representing more than 16% of the U.S. population. The passing of the Smithsonian American Latino Museum is vital for the development of this growing population that is estimated to total 25% of the U.S. population by 2050.
