NHCSL - The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators

NHCSL - The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators The NHCSL is the preeminent organization serving and representing the interests of Hispanic state legislators from all states, commonwealths, and territories of the United States.

Colorado State Senator Larry Trujillo, who was then Colorado Senate Minority Leader, founded the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) in 1989 as a non partisan, 501 (c) (3) non profit organization, representing over 300 elected Hispanic State legislators through out the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Since its founding, the NHCSL's primary mission has been to organize Hispanic state legislators who advocate on behalf of Hispanic communities across the United States. The NHCSL continues to be a leader in the fight for additional resources at all levels of government. Hispanics nationwide can benefit from better housing, education, healthcare, and business opportunities in both the public and private sectors. We work on your behalf with Congress and the White House to influence and direct these important national priorities.

Mission: The National Hispanic Caucus of Hispanic State Legislators (NHCSL) was founded in 1989 as a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3. The mission of the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) is to be the foremost organization serving and representing the interests of Hispanic state legislators from all states, commonwealths and territories of the United States and the Western Hemisphere. The NHCSL meets its mission by serving as a catalyst for joint action on issues of common concern, such as housing, immigration, education and healthcare, to all segments of the Hispanic community. In addition, NHCSL provides a forum for information exchange and member networking; supports leadership training; acts as a liaison with sister U.S. Hispanic organizations; promotes public and private partnerships with business and labor; and partners with Hispanic state or provincial legislators and their associations represented throughout the world.

Haunted by ghosts of elections past, Democrats push to flip state legislatures in 2020

“This is an especially important election in terms of redistricting. We have a once-in-a-decade opportunity for us to really put in place things that our community views as fair, independent and nonpartisan.”

“If you want to rebuild the Democratic Party and if you want to rebuild democracy in the United States, you have to win back state legislatures,” a Democratic strategist said.

The man behind 'Selena: The Series' is ready for Hollywood's Latinx revolution

"...we’re not a separate category. We’re part of America. We’re part of the mainstream.”
👋 Jaime of Campanario Entertainment: NHCSL and Congressional Hispanic Caucus agree. That's why we're working on modernizing/reforming tax and other incentive laws to increase diversity onscreen and create multi-dimensional non-stereotypical portrayals that, just like in real life, weave in #Hispanics into the fabric of America.

Great piece by Los Angeles Times Entertainment's Yvonne Villareal.

Producer Jaime Dávila wants the industry to know this about Latinos: "We're not a separate category. We're part of America. We're part of the mainstream."

Parents Of 545 Children Separated At U.S.-Mexico Border Still Can't Be Found

NO civilized democracy should EVER separate children from their parents’ embrace for merely trying to seek asylum, as they flee from violence and lack of food.
The masterminds of this cruel policy knew this would eventually happen and didn't care.

A court filing says many of the parents are presumed to no longer be in the United States. Efforts to locate them have been hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the filing.

UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative

New from UCLA LPPI: With Latinos estimated to make up at least 20% of all voters in key battleground states: AZ, FL, NV, & TX, they will be decisive in the #Election2020.

So how can candidates capture the Latino vote in the last few weeks before election day? Our report finds that mobilizing Latinos will require candidates to commit to substantive improvements in four key issue areas: healthcare, jobs, the economy, and ending racial discrimination.

Why? Latinos are the group most likely to earn less than $15 an hour, to lack health insurance, and to be exposed to COVID-19. Latinos also receive lower pay than white workers for doing similar work.

#EdwardRRoybal made public health a top priority. From restoring low-cost health programs for seniors to championing the CDC's first funding for AIDS research, his leadership prevented illness and saved lives for many Americans.
During his thirty-year tenure in Congress, he wrote the first bill giving federal support to #BilingualEducation and cofounded the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. In honor of his legacy, the CDC main campus bears his name and he posthumously received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014.

"I had to create my own parts, otherwise I was going to be relegated to playing the gangsters, the janitors, the drug dealers but we Latin people are so much more than that."
John Leguizamo has been speaking up about the need for diversity and inclusion during his entire three-decade career. In fact, he boycotted the #Emmys2020 citing “cultural apartheid.”
“If you don’t have Latin people, there’s no reason for me to see it." He passionately spoke about it at the #TonyAwards. (2/2)
