Earth Day 2015: Raising our Environmental Voice PDF Print E-mail

April 22, known as “Earth Day,” marks the birth of the U. S. environmental movement, launched in 1970 when an estimated 20 million Americans took to the streets to support a healthy and sustainable environment. Earth Day is widely credited with propelling the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species acts.

Over many decades, Hispanics have shown a similar groundswell of support for a sustainable environment. Spearheaded by pioneering Latino environmental justice agencies, Latino communities locally and nationally have come together to prevent and mitigate the impact of natural catastrophes brought on by man-made climate change, such as the unprecedented drought in California and the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.  In fact, polling proves that Latinos care more about climate change than most other communities.
