The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC)is a non profit organization formed to improve the image and employment of Hispanic
Americans in all facets of the media industry and to advocate for media and telecommunications policies that benefit the Latino
community. The collection consists of subject files documenting the NHMC's activities to address media-related issues affecting

by NHMC, NHMC's interest in media personality Howard Stern, material related to Univision/Hallmark and to the Disney company,
as well as numerous petitions filed by NHMC with the Federal Communications Commission related to licenses or other business

community across the county. The original office was established in Los Angeles, Calif. under the leadership of Armando Duron,
Alex Nogales, and Esther Reneria. Over the years it has formed chapters in Albuquerque, Chicago, New York, San Antonio and
other cities in the United States.
