Lin-Manuel Miranda

Songwriter / Actor / Director / Producer
"The most joyful and important part of success is to nurture, amplify, and uplift underrepresented voices and creators to make room for everyone’s own unique stories. Humanity is at its best when everyone not only has a seat at the table but a voice and an opportunity to thrive and grow. I’m extremely honored and excited to join forces with the National Hispanic Media Coalition and this incredible group of visionaries to help build up and advocate for these new creations. Let’s get to work!"
