The Latino Network of the American Alliance of Museums has released Strategies for Engaging and Representing Latinos in Museums, a new in-depth resource which provides background information and strategies for engaging and representing Latinos in authentic and meaningful ways. It includes questions for museums to self-assess their work with Latino communities, offers insights on the value of developing culturally specific content and bilingual initiatives, and highlights the importance of Latino representation on museum staff and boards.

The resource responds to a growing interest from colleagues in the museum field to attract and better serve Latino audiences, an interest which highlights a growing recognition of the important role that Latinos play in American society. It was developed by a task force comprised of members of the AAM Latino Network—Adrián Aldaba, Natalie Espinosa, Diana Xochitl Munn, Laura Susana Reyes, and Margarita Sandino—with input from Latino museum professionals with experience in all functional areas of museums. It draws from the personal experiences of individuals who have implemented Latino engagement efforts in museum settings, published materials, and insights from various institutions.
