Latinos in Heritage Conservation

A presentation of Texas Historical Foundation's grant to Latinos in Heritage Conservation will take place 10:30 a.m. Friday, November 17 at the THF office in Dallas. LHC received a grant in the spring of 2023 in support of their Latinx Preservation Toolkit, a bilingual video series exploring the process of historic preservation and spotlighting successful conservation campaigns in the Latino community. 

The Toolkit is part of the group's broader mission to widen the circle of preservationists in Texas, equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills to effectively identify and take on conservation efforts at the community level. By promoting tactics, strategies, and success stories from community-led preservation work, the project seeks to increase the ranks of those involved in conservation advocacy and broaden the scope of what heritage resources are deemed worth saving. 

The video series will be available in community workshops, conferences, and outreach events, in addition to being free for public use online.
