NHMC stands as a pillar of civil and human rights advocacy, a woman-led 501c(3)
nonprofit devoted to dismantling hate, discrimination, and racism aimed at Latino
communities. Our work spans from the policy-making halls of Washington D.C. to the
dynamic media landscape of Hollywood, where we serve as a catalyst, instigating
change and connecting Latinx talent with the entertainment industry.
Our mission revolves around three central pillars—equity and access, accountability,
and leadership to ownership. We work tirelessly to eliminate barriers inhibiting Latinx
communities from attaining true equity, be it in the realms of entertainment, media,
politics, or digital connectivity. We envision an accessible society where every individual,

We tirelessly call out issues that threaten the well-being of our communities. This
involves holding those in power to account, from elected officials and governmental

divide for Latino and other marginalized communities.
Lastly, we aspire to elevate Latinx individuals from merely leading roles to owners,
creating a lasting impact. We believe in the power of ownership—be it in Congress, in
media studios, or even as homeowners. This transition from leadership to ownership,
we believe, paves the way for impactful social change.
In collaboration with other social justice organizations, we strive to fortify democracy in
the United States, making a profound difference in the lives of Latinx and other
