The 31st Annual Latina History Day ® Conference brings together hundreds of women to recognize the historic and current achievements of Latinas, while embracing the rich diversity of the Latina experience. Join us as we engage in forums on career advancement, current community issues, and financial empowerment. Hear from inspiring keynotes and network with Latina leaders at our Comadre Network Expo. HOPE has been instrumental in securing local, county, state, and congressional officials to declare the second Friday in March (during Women's History Month) as Latina History Day ®.
This year's theme, Empower Your Inner Genius, is a call to action for each and every Latina to share their brilliance with the world, and a celebration of the Latina thinkers, creators and doers, past and present, who have made history and continue to shape our future.
For the safety of our speakers and guests, proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required to attend and will be checked at registration (no exceptions). Attendees must wear masks at all times unless actively eating or drinking.
