Congressman Xavier Becerra
I recently saw an item that mentioned legislation passed in May that will create a federal commission to explore the possibility of creating the National Museum of the American Latino.
The museum is the brainchild and pet project of Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA). Becerra issued a press release way back in September 2003 that said he was launching the project.
Univision, National Council of La Raza and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, among others, are working to keep the museum on the public’s radar. PR is being handled by Washington, DC-based Comunicad.
