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
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 . . . Mimi
