    This is Marli Kasdan with 350 DC. We’re rolling out a new campaign to demand DC council candidates for 2020 reject contributions from Pepco, our utility and one of the leading contributors/lobbyists against local renewable energy campaigns.


    We’re building a broad coalition of partners across the District, and we would love for Green Latinos to be join!


    We would love to share further information on action items, upcoming meetings, and events, and further resources on how Green Latinos can plug in!


    Is there someone I can be in contact with to share this information?

    Hello,



    My name is Preyah James, and I’m the Education and Community Engagement Assistant at Scenic Hudson, a land trust based in Poughkeepsie, NY. As a member of the education team at Scenic Hudson, we work to give youth opportunities to connect to their local environment and become empowered to advocate for their communities and the environment.



    I am currently working on a series of about 15 posters and a classroom curriculum we are calling “People Who Make a Difference”. Our goal for this project is to help fill a void by recognizing members of historically underrepresented groups/identities for their contributions to various environmental movements. Once completed, the posters will be distributed to local schools and available online, giving students and others the opportunity to learn about inspiring changemakers who have had a positive impact on the environment.


    I’m reaching out to inform Mark Magaña that we’ve chosen them and their story to be a subject for one of the posters in our upcoming series. Each poster will include a portrait of the person and a brief description highlighting notable achievements and contribution to improving the environment.



    The posters will be designed and created by local college students from a graphic design class at Dutchess Community College. Students will have the ability to express their own creativity and make decisions about the overall design of the posters. It will also provide students with professional graphic design experience by working with us as a client.



    Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback you have concerning the project. If Mr. Magaña has a high-quality portrait of themselves that they’d prefer to be used for the poster, we’d be more than happy to accommodate. We will send along updates once the project is complete, but be in touch if anything comes up in the meantime.


    Thank you so much for all you do, we look forward to celebrating you and other transformative people.

    What I’m doing:


    1. Working with the Lee County, FL “Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida”


    2. Growing the “Lee County Hispanics” group to get Hispanics to the ballot box in 2020.


    3. Promoting the Fair Automatic Simple Tax (“FAST”) as “the tool” to make Democratic Candidates “palatable” to Independents and Republicans not happy with Trump.


    The FAST Tax model is the way to provide the revenue necessary to address the very cause you so avidly support.

    I am Eulises Cibrian, a current Policy and Legislation Intern at LULAC focusing on the Environment, and I am contacting your organization to learn more about the issues that are/or potentially affecting the Latino community regarding the environment. I was wondering if my supervisor, Jose Gaona, and I could set up a meeting some time next week to further discuss what we at LULAC can do on the policy spectrum to address these issues. Please feel free to contact me through email, ecibrian@lulac.org.

    Thank You

    Greetings,


    My name is Lauren Pyle and I work with the Environmental Educators of North Carolina. I’ve heard a bit about the amazing work Green Latinos is doing. If you have any members or affiliates in North Carolina, especially the Charlotte region, I wanted to invite them, their staff, board, and anyone else you work with in the area who values nature and is interested in teaching about nature or the environment to our upcoming annual conference in Gastonia, NC from September 19-21.


    The Environmental Educators of North Carolina (EENC) strives to make our organization, and environmental education, more accessible, inclusive, and welcoming for all communities. EENC continues to seek new opportunities to work with organizations that represent the people of North Carolina, especially those that are wanting to expand networking and professional development opportunities in the environmental education field. Come to EENC’s annual conference where you can experience professional development, field trips, and networking with other educators who are working for a sustainable future. We’re especially excited about keynote Dr. Carolyn Finney!


    Do you have a successful project, lesson, or program related to environmental education at school; diversity, equity, and inclusion and the outdoors, community engagement (Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, etc.), teaching outside, storytelling and/or arts? If so, we’d love to shine a light on your work as a presenter! Proposal submissions are due Friday, 5/17, so we hope to see one from you soon! Available online at: https://eenc.wildapricot.org/conference#conference_proposals


    In addition, we are seeking applications for conference scholarships. We want to award over $4000 in scholarships based on both need and merit to cover full or partial registration costs – so this money could be for you! This year EENC is also focusing on addressing racial equity through an additional Inclusion Scholarship. Students, educators, volunteers, program staff, and community leaders are encouraged to apply! If you’re interested in presenting, we highly recommend you apply for a scholarship as well! Scholarship application deadline is May 24.

    Inclusion Scholarship details: https://eenc.wildapricot.org/resources/Documents/Conferences/Conference%202019/Inclusion%20Scholarship%20Description.pdf


    Learn more about this event at www.eenc.org or feel free to contact Lauren Pyle at eencexecdirector@gmail.com or 984-999-1702.


    We hope we can learn from you as part of our professional community!


    Lauren


    P.S. If you have a list-serve, staff/community contact email list, or even want to directly email this to your child’s teachers or after-school leaders, please help spread the word!

    Hello I summited for the green Latino summit 2019 scholarship and was wondering when will they announce if people got in or not.
    commented on Contact Us 2019-04-11 10:09:37 -0400
    I am a volunteer board member of Clean Energy Credit Union (www.cleanenergycu.org), and I’m writing to see if GreenLatinos might be willing to explore the possibility joining Clean Energy Credit Union’s “field of membership” whereby all GreenLatinos members would be eligible to join the credit union (which does not have any cost associated with it).


    First, I’d like to provide some background about Clean Energy Credit Union and about the kind of partnership that we’re envisioning:


    Clean Energy Credit Union is a new financial institution that focuses exclusively on providing loans for clean energy (or energy efficient) products and services such as solar PV systems, electric vehicles, ground source heat pumps, electric bicycles, green home improvements, etc. Since receiving its federal charter in September of 2017 and launching in early 2018, Clean Energy Credit Union has already made over 400 clean energy loans. Clean Energy Credit Union’s vision is a world where EVERYONE can participate in the clean energy movement, and the credit union makes this possible by making it easier for everyone to afford to use clean energy (by offering clean energy loans with amazing terms) and making it easier for everyone to invest in clean energy (by offering federally insured savings accounts and clean energy CDs whereby the deposits are solely used to help someone else pursue their clean energy project).


    As you may or may not know, although credit unions provide similar services as banks (and have the same federal insurance for their deposits), they are quite different from banks in many other ways. For example, credit unions are not-for-profit, financial services cooperatives that exist solely to serve their members and fulfill their missions, whereas banks exist to maximize financial returns for their stockholders. Another difference is that banks can serve the general public whereas credit unions can only serve a “field of membership” (FOM), which is defined by regulators as a group of people that all have something in common that binds them together as a community (either virtual or physical). Many credit unions have a FOM that includes people who work for a certain employer, or who live in a certain geographic area, or who are members of the same professional association or religious organization. Clean Energy Credit Union’s FOM is currently the members of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), as well as all members of their family and household. ASES is a 60-year-old non-profit association and has been a great partner, and now we are looking to expand the FOM to include other mission-aligned organizations – particularly ones that help ensure that growing clean energy movement isn’t just primarily comprised of white people. So, to make a long story short, we wanted to see if GreenLatinos might be willing to consider joining the FOM of Clean Energy Credit Union.


    Being a FOM organization would not require any commitment of time, money, or effort on the part of GreenLatinos. Instead, it would simply require a one-page letter to our federal regulators saying that GreenLatinos would like to be a part of the FOM for Clean Energy Credit Union. This would then be an additional “member benefit” for GreenLatinos members, and GreenLatinos could choose to advertise it – or not – in whatever way it sees fit. On Clean Energy Credit Union’s website, we would list a membership in GreenLatinos as one of the ways that someone could become eligible to join Clean Energy Credit Union. At the very least, this might be able to encourage some people to join GreenLatinos – because someone could not get a loan or open a savings account at the credit union without first joining GreenLatinos or ASES. ASES has seen its membership increase by over 1,000 people as a result of being in our FOM.


    Would GreenLatinos be willing to consider exploring a potential partnership like this? Please let me know if you might be willing to speak with me about this.


    Thank you for your consideration,

    Sincerely,

    Blake Jones, Volunteer Board Chair
