President Obama to Participate in a Town Hall at the Newseum
President Barack Obama will participate in a historic town hall at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, March 6, at 11:30 a.m.
The town hall, "Tu Salud y La Nueva Ley: Conversación con el Presidente" ("Your Health and the New Law: A Conversation With the President"), will allow Latinos across the United States to ask the president questions about the Affordable Care Act.
The town hall will be televised, broadcast over radio and live-streamed over digital and social platforms in Spanish.
The town hall is hosted by The Asegúrate Campaign, a Latino outreach and enrollment effort of The California Endowmen, in partnership with the largest Spanish-language media outlets in the United States, including Univision, Telemundo and ImpreMedia.
Today, one in four Americans turns to ethnic media for news. On May 16, 2014, the Newseum, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution, will open "One Nation With News for All," a new exhibit that tells the dramatic story of how immigrants and minorities used the power of the press to fight for their rights and shape the American experience.
"News for All" reflects the vibrancy and diversity of today's ethnic media, from ImpreMedia, the largest Spanish-language news company in the United States, to the black-owned Radio One network to the "Angry Asian Man" blog.Related Links:
