Today HRC released two new videos for the Americans for Marriage Equality campaign, this time featuring Rossana Rosado.  Rosado has been Publisher and CEO of El Diario La Prensa, the nation's oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper, since 1999, after having served as the paper’s Editor-in chief for a number of years - the first woman to hold the position.  The list of her journalism accomplishments includes an Emmy, a Peabody Award for Journalism and the New York Press Club President’s Award, among many others.  She also served on Mayor Bloomberg’s transition team and as one of six co-chairs for Gov. Spitzer’s transition team.  Founded in 1913, El Diario la Prensa is the nation’s oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper and the largest in New York.

Rosado is featured in two videos for the campaign - an English-language version and a Spanish-language version.

This is the fourteenth video released by HRC for the Americans campaign.  Past videos feature The Rev. Al Sharpton, Lloyd Blankfein, U.S. Sen. Al Franken, Michael K. Williams, Aisha Tyler, Dee Rees and Kim Wayans, Scott Fujita, Josh Charles, Katori Hall, John Leguizamo, Julian Bond, Mo’Nique, and Mayor Cory Booker.

About 53% of the American public supports marriage for same-sex couples, according to a number of nonpartisan polls, including Gallup, CNN, and Washington Post/ABC News.
