Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
Highlights of Plus Three's Continuing Work to Promote the Stories and Contributions of American Latinos
At Plus Three, we are marking the conclusion of Hispanic Heritage Month by highlighting our continuing partnership with and services for the Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino (FRIENDS), which seeks to create a museum in our nation’s capital dedicated to the history, culture, and contributions of Latinos to the American fabric.
We began our work with the congressionally mandated National Museum of the American Latino Commission, and within a few months built national support for the museum to 50,000 people. Now, under the banner of the FRIENDS, Plus Three has designed and helped launch americanlatinomuseum.org and the organization is on the verge of surpassing 200,000 supporters—already more than any of the existing Smithsonian museums.
In the past month, Plus Three has also launched the website of the HBO special The Latino List, which tells the American Latino story through the eyes of some our nation’s most celebrated Latino icons, and a project for the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) to raise awareness of its Insider Game documentary project on diversity in corporate America. Finally, we are proud to continue our work to enhance the online presence and outreach of the oldest Latino civil rights organization in the nation, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). With over 700 chapters in the U.S., Plus Three is working to ensure that LULAC has the capabilities to promote its public policy priorities and mobilize its members.
