Diane Guerrero

"It is an honor to uplift the National Hispanic Media Coalition's advocacy work as a member of its first ever Visionary Alliance. Alongside my peers, I will collaborate and create opportunities for Latine talent to ensure that they're in every space in the entertainment industry. I look forward to joining NHMC’s mission to be a voice for up-and-coming Latine talent, so they’re always be intentionally considered."
