When Luis A. Miranda Jr. left Puerto Rico for New York City in the 1970s, he had big dreams, but little did he know how far he’d go.
Siempre, Luis follows Miranda over the course of a year as his devotion to family and country propels his insatiable appetite for empowering his fellow Latinos. With humor and heart, the documentary dives into Miranda's campaign to mitigate the devastation of Hurricane Maria in his homeland by tirelessly organizing relief efforts and managing the logistics behind bringing his son Lin-Manuel Miranda’s award-winning production of Hamilton to the island.
Welcoming audiences into the man's passionate, patriotic, family-focused world, Siempre, Luis ultimately tells the story of a proud American whose lifetime dedication to community and fatherhood has rendered him an unstoppable force of nature.

To celebrate the rich history of the Latinx community, HBO commissioned a mural in Washington Heights, NY that tells the story of the Latinx diaspora in New York City from the late 1800s until now. Inspired by Siempre, Luis, local Latinx artists Carlos J. Martinez, Dister, Danny Peguero and Carla Torres brought four historical time periods to life, each contextualized by audio from historian Johanna Fernández, PhD.
Siempre, Raising Our Voices
HBO partnered with When We All Vote, Black Women’s Blueprint, and Hispanic Federation to create a civic engagement mentorship series inspired by Siempre, Luis and Luis A. Miranda, Jr.’s impact.
Youth engagement expert Jamira Burley and 17-year-old high school student and activist Gabrielle Forbes join Stephanie L. Young, Managing Director for Communications, Culture & Partnerships for When We All Vote, to discuss how young Americans can organize their community, even before they can legally vote.

In a conversation moderated by journalist Maria Hinojosa, activists Frankie Miranda (President, Hispanic Federation), Maria Gabriela “Gaby” Pacheco (Program Director, TheDream.US), and Mónica Ramírez (Co-Founder, The Latinx House) provide practical advice and motivation for aspiring activists learning how to think outside the box and create lasting change without sacrificing personal well-being.
