The Latinx Preservation Advocacy Toolkit
The Latinx Preservation Advocacy Toolkit will be the first of its kind! The toolkit will be a print and digital booklet that will demystify historic preservation and empower our communities and provide access to information traditionally not shared with historic Latinx communities. The Toolkit will be accompanied by a series of short, bilingual videos that explore the processes and consequences of historic preservation, highlight Latinx heritage conservation success stories throughout the country, and provide guidance and advice on how to preserve history and communities throughout the state. The toolkit will be an educational bilingual (English and Spanish) resource that will help Latinx community members and organizations in urban and rural areas advocate for the protection of Latinx historic sites and other tangible or intangible heritage resources. In doing so, we will help promote inclusion in historic preservation by creating and widely distributing an accessible toolkit.
Fellowships are 15-hours a week, starting on June 19, 2023, and ending on August 11, 2023. Scheduling is flexible, but Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 am CT to 2 pm CT should be reserved for meetings.

Join Our Movement
Founded in 2014, Latinos in Heritage Conservation (LHC) is celebrated as the leading organization preserving Latinx places, stories, and cultural heritage in the United States. We are a diverse network of intergenerational advocates conserving Latinx sites and living cultures in the fabric of American society, affirming the value of our history in the hemispheric struggle for social justice. LHC is transforming the preservation movement at a national scale through innovative projects and capacity-building efforts to amplify Latinx communities and heritage.
To build a movement that affirms Latinx heritage through education, conservation, and leadership development.
Our commitment to
A just world that values Latinx heritage, people, and places.
LHC is deeply devoted to diversity, equity, and inclusion, both within the organization and with the communities that we serve. The LHC is committed to building a team that represents and supports a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, by fostering a work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment, whether based on race, national origin, gender, gender expression, religion, ethnic background, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or any other criterion prohibited by applicable federal, state, or local laws. We believe that diversity and inclusion among our team is critical to our success, and we seek to recruit, develop, and retain talented people from a diverse candidate pool.
Research shows that women and individuals from underrepresented backgrounds often apply to jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. We recognize that it is highly unlikely that an applicant meets 100% of the qualifications for a given role. Therefore, if much of this job description describes you, then you are highly encouraged to apply for this fellowship!
