En La Lucha for Clean Air

Chispa Nevada

Chispa Nevada is working with communities of color to protect our families’ rights to clean air and water, healthy neighborhoods, and a safe climate for generations to come.

We’re calling on decision makers to support electric vehicles and policies that will reduce air pollution. Pollution from the transportation sector is one of the major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, worsening the effects of climate change and especially harming the health and futures of low-income communities of color.

Urge your elected official today to support policies that will prioritize electric vehicles and reduce air pollution! TAKE ACTION w/ Chispa Nevada »

Chispa Arizona

According to the American Lung Association, Phoenix is the 7th most ozone polluted city in the nation, and Arizona is the third fastest warming state in the nation. Latinos suffer from asthma at higher rates than the broader population. Investing in clean, renewable energy is the most sustainable way we can protect our collective health, environment, and future. 

Chispa Arizona is working to advance investment in renewable energy commitments at the state and local level. We are fighting for more accessibility at venues where decisions about our energy future are being made, and demanding just rates and an ambitious transition to clean, renewable energy.

The cost of energy is already high for our communities and the environment. TAKE ACTION w/ Chispa Arizona »

Protegete

Protégete is an organizing-focused program that advocates for equitable access to a healthy environment, specifically for Colorado’s communities on the frontlines of pollution.

Protégete means “protect yourself!” We empower people of color to build a more powerful and influential voice for frontline communities who often suffer the worst environmental burdens and their associated health impacts including increased rates of asthma and respiratory disease.

By building leadership in underrepresented communities through education, mobilization, and coalition building, and electing candidates who will fight environmental injustices, we work to change the political landscape on environmental issues. TAKE ACTION w/ Protegete Today »
