“The Latino community of Pennsylvania is at the edge of reaching one million – a historic milestone in our state. This convention is created 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 outcomes and community progress.”

– Chairman Norman Bristol Colón

In September, 2019 the Inaugural Pennsylvania Latino Convention (PALC) took place in the City of Lancaster. As a result of this event, a “white paper” (download below) was produced to spark conversations across industries and leaders to address the basic needs of Latinos in Pennsylvania. 

This report calls for a statewide equity agenda which includes the voices of 1-million Latino residents of the state.  It provides a state and national outlook on Latino demographics. 

This publication aiming to ignite public and private collaborations to enhance quality of life issues impacting the state’s Latino residents.  The path to a stronger Pennsylvania lies in our collective efforts building a stronger Latino community. 

We thank you for your leadership support and are proud to call you amigo de la comunidad (friend of the community).
