The Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States invites you to join us for our 2019 colloquium in Dayton, Ohio from June 2-5. This year, ACHTUS celebrates 30 years of colloquia and 5 women Presidents in a row. Over the last few years, ACHTUS colloquia have dealt with various social issues including LGBTQ+ rights, the prison industrial complex, and the environment. This year’s colloquium follows the Academy’s commitment to justice from the purview of LatinoXa scholars of religion, with particular attention to human rights and the various intricacies of what human rights may mean for our various communities.
