Francia Raisa

Writer / Actor
"Feeling and seeing the increase in Latine representation in the entertainment industry has been so empowering, but I know we have ways to go. There is such great power in coming together to celebrate the variety of cultures that we as Latinos represent and tell these stories on the big screen. That is why I’m honored to continue this work alongside an inspiring group of colleagues with NHMC’s Visionary Alliance. Together, we’ll work to ensure that Latinos are given the opportunities to share our richness and creativity, both in front of and behind the camera."

Francia Raisa can currently be seen in season two of Hulu sitcom HOW I MET YOUR FATHER alongside Hilary Duff. Season one premiered in January 2022 with rave reviews.
