Frequently Asked Questions

Revolución 2024 is an annual three-day program showcasing the most diverse and inclusive Latino/Latina speakers, panels, creators, and artists. Each of the panel discussions and workshops is held by successful professionals who have triumphed in their respective areas. This is not just a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month; it is a platform where diverse voices can engage in inclusive conversations while showcasing the rich cultural contributions that shape the Latino/a/e experience creating a lasting impact in the community.

Revolucion was created Founder Rafael Fernandez was tired of society painting our culture with the same brush during Hispanic Heritage Month. Nothing about us is generic; our culture, food, music, literature, and even languages are extremely diverse. When you look at our Revolución lineup and content it is very intentional. Our goal is to ensure that you see yourself and your life experiences reflected in the programming and that you feel a sense of pride to be Latino/Latina/Latine. Representation Matters!
