Now Available: Findings Report from National Latino Climate Leadership Forum
On June 17, 2016, more than 75 Latino leaders from all backgrounds—including faith, health, business, education, community, government, and environment—gathered in Washington, D.C., for the National Latino Climate Leadership Forum. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing Latinos today, and with their voting population poised to be game-changers in the 2016 elections and beyond, there has never been a better time or opportunity for action. This forum was designed to be a platform for collaboration to magnify impact by elevating Latino voices and leadership.
Through a series of interactive work sessions, attendees gained valuable insights on how to strengthen engagement, increase funding, and create broader inclusion and ownership of the movement. ecoAmerica has consolidated those findings into a new report, which provides specific, prioritized, and actionable recommendations for new initiatives and collaborations that put Latinos at the forefront of climate solutions.
