Friends of the American Latino Museum (FRIENDS) is the only campaign dedicated to the creation of a National Smithsonian American Latino Museum. As an effort to mobilize students, local Latino leaders, and academic communities across the country, FRIENDS launched University town halls at Rice University and at the University of Southern California in 2013. In partnership with leading research institutions, the informational town halls served as a venue for sharing Latino history and generating the momentum in key cities that will be needed for achieving our goal and fostered an interactive conversation focused on nurturing the urgency for this museum.
