In August 2024, Latinos in Heritage Conservation (LHC), the nation’s leading advocate for Latinx history and historic preservation, will host Congreso 2024, a national preservation conference. Taking place from August 8th to 10th in San Diego, California, this event aims to explore diverse perspectives and foster the next generation of Latinx heritage leaders.


Organized in collaboration with the Chicano Park Museum and Cultural Center, this three-day conference will be a success with your support, addressing this timely and important topic on Latinx voices.

Congreso 2024 marks LHC's inaugural national gathering in the California and Western region and is expected to attract more than 250 attendees from across the nation, as well as local and state communities. This conference underscores LHC's dedication to fostering a culturally and geographically diverse movement during a pivotal period for American Latinxs.

Our biennial conference brings together national thought leaders, preservationists, scholars, and community advocates for a comprehensive dialogue on the significance and future of heritage conservation within the Latinx communities along the southern California borderland.
