32nd Annual Conference

Cultural Awareness and Social Justice

Two Parts in Two Places:

  • Virtual: A Prelude to Tucson  —  February 19-20, 2021
  • Tucson, Arizona  —  October 27-30, 2021

AAPLAC has designed our 2021 gatherings to accommodate the likelihood of curtailed travel early in the year and to promote the collaboration, exchange and local immersion experiences for which the annual conference is known.

February will feature two virtual roundtable discussions, a gallery of video submissions, synchronous discussion and networking in response, and an introduction to the cultural complexity of Tucson and the innovation, expertise and challenges characteristic of agencies and educators in the region.

October welcomes us to Tucson with a guest emphasis on Indigenous and Native Nation Initiatives, a variety of participant presentations and discussions on the conference themes, and a cultural excursion.

Future Conferences

The Executive Board of AAPLAC seeks site proposals to host the 33rd Annual Conference in 2022. The conference will preferably take place in Latin America or the Caribbean, though proposals for alternate locations may be considered. Please contact AAPLAC President Stephanie Athey with any questions or to submit your site proposal.
