Event description
The premier leadership and professional development conference/convention covering all aspects of Latino life in Pennsylvania

About this event

• Established in 2018, the Pennsylvania Latino Convention is the most inclusive and comprehensive statewide event covering all aspects of Latino life in Pennsylvania.

o 2018 – City of Lancaster - Inaugural Convention

o 2019 – City of Bethlehem

o 2020 – Virtual

o 2021 – City of Reading - This year!!!

• PALC is the only statewide Latino event pursuing an agenda that is policy-driven, research-based, and data-oriented to advance the social, cultural, political, economic and educational status of Pennsylvania’s residents of Latino descent.

• Awaiting for official census 2020 numbers to confirm there are more than 1 million Latinos in Pennsylvania, the Convention will be the official celebration of this historic fact.

• PALC is an official statewide Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration.

• 2021 National Hispanic Heritage Month Theme: Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope

• Located in the 222 Latino Corridor, Reading is poised to transform the region into a hub for diversity, equity and inclusion.

• Reading is the state’s fifth largest city.

• Reading in 2021 is the Latino Capital of Pennsylvania with the largest percentage of its city residents of Latino/Hispanic ancestry. We celebrate Latino historic moments: Eddie Moran elected Mayor, Michael Rivera elected County Commissioner, Manuel Guzman elected State Representative.
