CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER and CLEAN ENERGY: MOBILIZING AROUND CLIMATE CHANGE TO DEMAND HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS COMMUNITIES

Latinos are at the front lines of climatic destruction and environmental degradation, yet we are underrepresented in the public debate on climate change and global warming. Today is Earth Day, and it is an opportunity for Latinos throughout the U.S. and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico to galvanize around an issue that affects public health, transportation and the quality of our air, our water, our land, our sustenance and livelihoods. As a community, we have a voice and vote and it’s time for us to assert that the climate change movement is ours too.
