2nd Annual PA Latino Convention Announced:1 Million Strong
Aiming to tackle issues impacting the state’s Latino population

BETHLEHEM, PA – A diverse group of leaders, professionals and community members announced this year’s 2nd Annual Pennsylvania Latino Convention (PALC) to be held October 29-31.  The city of Bethlehem was selected as the host city for its thriving Latino community and its proximity to the state’s 222 Corridor, where more than half of the Latino population is concentrated.

“The Latino community of Pennsylvania is at the edge of reaching one million – a historic milestone in our state.  This convention is now the most comprehensive event covering all aspects of Latino life in Pennsylvania.  We want to be ready to serve as a bridge for educational, health, housing, employment, and economic advancements in Latino communities throughout Pennsylvania using data, research and policy for measurable community progress.  I am thrilled to bring this event to the Lehigh Valley,” said PALC Chair Norman Bristol Colón.

“PALC was created to serve as the annual gathering to ignite positive change in local communities across the state while ensuring key stakeholders are accessible, accountable and responsive to the needs of the Latino community.  As Bethlehem Councilwoman, I am proud to host and welcome the convention to our city of steel and progress.  Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley are ready to embrace the vitality of the growing Latino community of our state,” said PALC Vice-Chair Olga Negrón

The convention agenda will include dynamic super sessions featuring prominent leaders, professionals, experts and advocates: Plenaries, Town Halls, Leadership Institute, Workshops, Health & Wellness Pavilion, Education Pavilion, Exhibitors, State Leadership Luncheon, and Gala Dinner Reception 

“The cities of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton are formidable components of the Lehigh Valley and its rapid growth and statewide political and economic impact.  Bringing the convention to this prime location is a reaffirmation of our commitment to strengthening regions where a vibrant Latino community is fundamental to all aspects of the region’s life and future,” the group concluded in a joint statement. 

The Historic Hotel Bethlehem is located on flourishing and trendy Main Street in Downtown Bethlehem.  Special rates are available to convention guests.
