NHMC Continues To Advocate Despite Trump's Lawsuit Threat
(PASADENA, Calif. - 7/2/15) -- This afternoon, Thursday July 2, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) received a call from The Trump Organization's chief counsel threatening a lawsuit against NHMC if it does not cease its advocacy efforts.
NHMC will not stand down in its defense of the American Latino community, especially against the racist statements Trump made during his June 16 Presidential announcement.
Tom Saenz, President and General Counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), has agreed to defend NHMC against any litigation threats.
The NHMC is a media advocacy and civil rights organization for the advancement of Latinos, working towards a media that is fair and inclusive of Latinos, and towards universal, affordable, and open access to communications.
