A lifetime of work for the Latin community

Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors

Founded in 1975 by a group of Hispanic actors working in New York to address the inequities created by the casting system that underemployed Hispanic actors and relegated Latino characters to negative stereotypes. Now HOLA functions as a leading advocacy organization in the industry for such actors working on stage, on television, streaming, and in films. 

HOLA dedicated to expanding the presence of Latin/Hispanic artists in entertainment and media through their development, cultivation, education, empowerment, and recognition. HOLA has served as a crucial resource to the NY casting community for more than 45 years by hosting a Hispanic talent database available to casting directors and agents in addition to distributing casting notices to members.
