Phoenix, Arizona – Mi Familia Vota is celebrating Latino Conservation Week July 14-20. Latinos have an enormous power to influence our environment with over 58 million Latinos living in the U.S. The environment is one of the priority voter issues within the community and Mi Familia Vota is engaging constituents across the country in activities to promote clean energy, reduced pollution, and environmental conservation.
Mi Familia Vota will host a special event for National Parks and Public Lands Advocacy Day on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 in partnership with Latinos for Parks. The organizations and community members will visit Montezuma Castle National Monument to witness the incredible legacy of the Verde Valley and gather for a press conference. Participants will learn more about environmental advocacy focused on the Climate Action Now Act and Congress’ role in funding, protecting and conserving National Parks and other public lands. “We want our community to communicate directly with their congressional representatives and ask Congress to take action on our climate.
