GreenLatinos Core Policy Priorities


Each year members of the GreenLatinos network gather at the organization's National Summit to, among other things, select the organization's core policy priorities for the coming year.

From these core policy priorities, GreenLatinos works in coalition with its members through policy working groups to educate policymakers, stakeholders and the public at-large; develop position papers, research, and insights on the broad implications of our core policy priorities specifically to Latino communities; and coordinate advocacy, and provide leadership to positively impact change on our core policy priorities.

Environmental Justice, Civil Rights & Public Engagement
