National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) announced the members of its first NHMC Visionary Alliance. The Visionary Alliance consists of “some of the most dynamic and celebrated Latine voices in the creative space who are aligned in their support of NHMC’s mission, innovative programming and advocacy.”
The creation of the Visionary Alliance builds off of NHMC’s 2023 theme “We are the rule, not the exception” — moving past Latino representation as a “trendy” topic, in both media and social justice, and part of the framework of major organizations around the country. Visionary Alliance members will support NHMC’s advocacy to connect, collaborate, and create opportunities for Latine talent in the entertainment industry through NHMC’s programming, including the Series Scriptwriters Program and the Latinx Stream Showcase.
“We are elated that some of the most talented and influential voices in the entertainment world are part of our first ever Visionary Alliance,” said Brenda Victoria Castillo, president—CEO, National Hispanic Media Coalition. “These members are visionaries in their own right who have paved their own lanes in this industry and throughout their careers have been champions for what we stand and advocate for every day. We are committed to continuing the work in uplifting Latine creatives, while also advocating for representation and inclusivity throughout multiple industries and within our government.”
Through traditional and social media, events, advocacy and more, Alliance members will be provided opportunities to immerse themselves in NHMC’s social justice work, engage with supporters to amplify its impact and pursue NHMC’s mission of ensuring Latine representation
