Our Mission

NHMC is a civil rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism towards the Latinx community.

We educate and increase Latinx visibility from our policy work in Washington D.C. to our media advocacy work in Hollywood, where we collaborate, create, and connect Latinx talent with the entertainment industry. At NHMC, we focus on all forms of media because it is one of the most influential and powerful institutions that shape society’s attitudes, values, and beliefs.

We lead the work to eliminate online hate and disinformation across media platforms. We advocate for Affordable Broadband Benefit, Lifeline Program, Net Neutrality protections, and closing the digital divide for Latino and other marginalized communities. NHMC works in partnership with other social justice organizations to safeguard democracy in the United States of America.

RESPONSIBLE AND INCLUSIVE MEDIA

Preserving media ownership limits is critical to protecting media ownerships of color from bring crowded out by rampant media consolidation.

UNIVERSAL AND AFFORDABLE COMMUNICATIONS

The Lifeline Program has worked for three decades as the only government program dedicated to bringing phone and internet service within reach for people of color, the poor, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and the less educated.

COMMUNITY POWERED SOLUTIONS

In today’s digital age, consumers are growing more concerned about the invasions of their privacy by the government and corporations. Government agencies and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have sweeping access to the personal information of individuals and user activity online.
