Protégete: Our Air, Our Health, a joint program of Conservation Colorado and League of Conservation Voters, is building a more powerful and influential voice for local Latino communities and leaders in the fight against climate change by promoting clean energy for a healthy future for all Coloradans.
Protégete means “protect yourself!” Clean air, water, and public health matter to everyone, but many Coloradans are underrepresented in protecting themselves from the impacts of climate change. The Protégete program plays a key role in changing that. Learn more about the accomplishments of this highly successful initiative to elevate the voices of Colorado’s Latino communities for conservation. This work continues in 2017 on an unprecedented scale and you can be a part of it! Latino communities suffer disproportionate impacts from pollution, including increased rates of asthma and respiratory disease. We reach out to communities and foster leadership to build a strong voice for Latino families for clean air, healthy communities, and a safe climate for future generations.
