Deliver Introductory Remarks at USHLI Conference
USHLI is pleased to announce that Lin-Manuel Miranda will deliver introductory remarks at the Hispanic Legends Award Dinner at 7pm, Saturday, February 22. The dinner will bring the 38th USHLI National Conference to an exciting conclusion. His father, Luis A. Miranda Jr., will be receiving the Hank Lacayo Lifetime Achievement Award.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an award-winning composer, lyricist, and actor. He is the creator and original star of Broadway’s Tony-winning musicals, Hamilton and In the Heights. Hamilton - with book, music and lyrics by Mr. Miranda, in addition to him originating the title role - was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and earned a record-breaking 16 Tony Nominations, winning 11.

Mr. Miranda has actively supported the relief efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria in September 2017, creating the benefit single, “Almost Like Praying” as well as releasing its Salsa Remix, benefitting the Hispanic Federation's UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program, helping relief and recovery efforts on the island. In honor of the historic 2019 run of Hamilton in Puerto Rico, the Miranda family, the producers of Hamilton, and the Flamboyan Foundation partnered to create the Flamboyan Arts Fund, raising $15 million for arts and culture on the island.   

He received his B.A. from Wesleyan University in 2002. He lives in NYC with his wife, sons and dog.

About the #USHLIConference

The #USHLIConference has become the premier Hispanic leadership conference in the nation, attracting a complete cross-section of our leadership community and involving all ancestry groups. Over 6,500 present and future leaders representing 40 states will attend various events throughout the four days.Our 2019 Conference demographic survey included over 1,300 respondents who overwhelmingly rated the USHLI conference as the premier Hispanic leadership conference in the nation; 89% were between the ages of 18-34; 65% identified as female; and 82% were classified as students ranging from High School to Graduate School. The survey also found that 7% of our attendees are pursuing an advanced degree. Most conference participants are or will become the most influential Hispanic leaders of their generation and will help govern our cities, schools, states and, indeed, a nation that will become 25% Hispanic during their lifetime.
