What? Climate change is a Latino issue. From extreme heat and dirty air, to polluted water and natural disasters, our changing climate is impacting millions of Latinos living in the United States today and we are deeply concerned about how these changes are affecting us and our future. It’s no wonder that 9 in 10 Latinos in the United States support action on climate change.
The time for action is now. This September, leaders from all over the world will come together in San Francisco for the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit. To truly fight against the impacts of climate change, the United States must lead and Latinos are poised to play an instrumental role in the fight.
The Latino Community Foundation (LCF), Voces Verdes, and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), invite you to join us in celebrating Latino leadership at this premier affiliate event during the Global Climate Action Summit: Spotlighting Latino Leadership on Climate Change in California and Beyond.
Join us for an intimate discussion with Latinos leaders from California, the US and the world who are playing an integral role in the fight against climate change. Bringing Latino leadership to this global event reaffirms our community’s commitment to fight claimed change, encourage greater leadership among Latinos, and mobilize Latinos everywhere on this critical issue. We hope to see you there!
