USC Town Hall
On Friday, December 6, 2013 the campaign to create a Smithsonian American Latino Museum presented a Town Hall with the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute at USC Price School of Public Policy. This event was an interactive discussion on the need to create a long overdue national Smithsonian American Latino Museum in our nation's capital that will honor the many important contributions Latinos have made to our nation since before its founding.
