There’s many reasons to be involved in this work. Latinos are among the most affected by pollution and suffer from higher hospital admission rates for asthma. This is of particular concern in Colorado because 68% of Latinos in Colorado live in counties that violate federal ground-level ozone standards. Sadly, across the U.S., Hispanic children are 40% more likely to die from asthma than non-Hispanic children.
Latinos understand that we have a moral obligation to be caretakers of this planet especially when it means safeguarding the health of our future and our children. So that’s why, with your support, our state partner Conservation Colorado is building a strong organizing program in Colorado bring about a future we all want to see.
