REFORMA National Conference & 50th Anniversary Celebration

Somos el cambio • We Are the Change

Date: November 4 - 7, 2021
Location: Virtual

The REFORMA National Conference is the premier training and networking event for anyone interested in library services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking. RNCVII will celebrate REFORMA's 50th Anniversary and will offer an extraordinary lineup of programs, authors, and vendors under the theme Somos el cambio • We Are the Change.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions at the federal and local level, RNC VII has transitioned to an all-virtual event. We are thankful to the original local hosts, Oregon Chapter of REFORMA. We admire and appreciate their commitment and steady loyalty.

This interactive conference will honor the traditions of the last 50 years while inspiring future generations of Reformistas. Our legacy and history will light the path as we continue to enrich library services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking.

¡Adelante REFORMA!
