Latinxs, Climate, and the Environment: Where do we go from here

Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Virtual Event

What is your climate story? Over the last few years, we have seen direct and sometimes tragic evidence of how the health of our planet affects us directly. We have also seen how our personal and community actions may not be having the impact we may wish for. How do we move to the next step of what we can do? What would be the next most impactful action to take if we could?

Our Latino/a/x communities are disproportionately and heavily affected by the changes that a warming climate is causing in industries like agriculture and construction, as well as heavily impacted by hurricanes and climate-related illnesses and displacement. As we continue celebrating this year’s Mes de la Hispanidad/Hispanic Heritage Month, let’s talk about climate and environmental activism in our community and how we can best impact our future.

Participants: Calie Santana, Julieta Rodrigo, Andrew Otazo. Moderator: Sarah Naiman.
