What We Do

Together with our partners the Southeast Climate and Energy Network (SCEN) and the Florida Conservation Alliance Institute (FCAI), Latinos Go Green pursues the following short-term strategies:

Focus on Latino organizations and stakeholders in the southeastern United States to educate and engage them about environmental issues and spark action by replicating the SCEN outreach model and USCAN’s established infrastructure;

Identify emerging leaders in these Latino communities and create an infrastructure for Hispanic environmental leaders to train said emerging leaders; and

Organize the newly established network of Latino organizations, leaders, and stakeholders to engage in issue relevant events and civic engagement actions.

We achieve the aforementioned strategies by pursuing the following tactics:

  1. Build a network of Hispanic organizations in our targeted areas of focus to collaborate in program building
  2. Create a Latino environmental fellowship program to train new leadership in environmental stewardship and community-building
  3. Develop local environmental solutions-based programs with local ntwork organizations
  4. Engage Latinos to participate in civic engagement with an environmental twist
