Lawmakers Introduce New Legislation for Smithsonian American Latino Museum in DC

“We want America to see who we are,” Becerra said. “But if we’re going to be housed in the dark recesses of some storage container because there’s not enough room for all that, that’s not enough.”

Eva Longoria has been a leading proponent in this museum effort, along with Emilio Estefan, Rosario Dawson and several others.

The legislation calls for the creation of the new museum in the Smithsonian’s Arts and Industries Building.
