Petition to Bring Albert Pujols to Mizzou sign now

On the campus of the University of Missouri, the Latino student population needs an influential role model to come to campus and help alleviate the negative images and cultural misunderstandings of the Latino community that have become more prominent in the face of recent immigration laws. With MU Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) members being victimized by some of these stereotypes, HALO is especially dedicated to educating the campus about the Latino community during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15).

We, the Hispanic American Leadership Organization, the students of the University of Missouri, members of the University staff and faculty, and members of the Columbia community, have signed this petition asking that the school make it a priority to bring Cardinals baseball player Albert Pujols as a guest speaker during Hispanic Heritage Month.

As a widely admired Latino baseball player, Mr. Pujols is a role model not only to the Latino community, but to sports enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds. By detailing his experiences growing up in the Dominican Republic, immigrating to the United States, and his pursuit of the American Dream, the campus as a whole may begin to see that his struggles and dreams are not much different from many other Latino families that have immigrated to the U.S.

With tentative dates selected in October, the support of the Missouri Students Association (MSA), and a formal request letter drafted to Mr. Pujols, the Hispanic American Leadership Organization believes the campus-wide interest in this event and its topic will help alleviate cultural misunderstandings about the Latino community here in Columbia and Missouri.
