The Colorado Latino population is the eighth largest in the nation, about 21% of the state’s population, and growing.
Yet for a variety of institutional and economic reasons, Latinos have not historically been part of the political process and have too often been overlooked in the fight to curb carbon pollution and combat climate change.
This is why we introduced our Promotores for Environmental Justice & Action leadership training. The curriculum is focused on building leaders by providing the resources, knowledge and leadership skills to organize local communities and hold elected officials accountable when they no longer represent the values of the people who elected them into office in the first place.
Protégete has graduated over 150 Promotores to date!
If you’re interested in participating in an upcoming Promotor training, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
