Join Latina/o preservationists, scholars, and community advocates in our growing efforts to build a diverse, intergenerational network of individuals and communities dedicated to the preservation of Latina/o places and stories throughout the United States. The purpose of this two-day working gathering is to set the direction of this national organization and determine its priorities for the next 3-5 years. We will discuss key issues in the field while establishing a clear mission to advance our efforts to recognize, protect, and support Latina/o cultural heritage in communities throughout the country. Summit attendees will also have the chance to visit and learn about Tucson’s Latino heritage. Who should attend: Leaders in Latina/o communities, grassroots advocates, cultural workers, students, and educators who are actively engaged in issues related to Latina/o heritage and preservation and interested in shaping a national dialogue. The event is generously hosted by the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation and the University of Arizona Heritage Conservation Program.
