Latino Climate Justice Framework

Our comunidades are disproportionately impacted by extreme weather — from farmworkers enduring unbearable heat, to other distressing effects our families are experiencing in urban areas. As Latino/a/es, we have the power to unlock climate justice solutions for our gente and the world. Watch this powerful story on outdoor workers in Arizona and join our movement to reclaim our climate justice narrative!

The Latino Climate Justice Framework exists to highlight the disproportionate impacts of climate change on nuestra comunidad latina. Our communities are heavily represented in outdoor jobs such as farm working, which means they are exposed to the extreme heat that puts workers at elevated risk for heat stroke and dehydration. Since September 2022, Latino/a/e people across America have signed onto the LCJF, joining the call for climate justice solutions designed with our gente in mind.
