Environmental Impacts on Latino Communities


Latino families are the same as all other American families with the same priorities, including a safe job, a good education for their children, and safe communities to live in.  However, when it  comes to the environment, "we care about it because we suffer from it, but we also want to see solutions that make us healthier but also make our economies healthier," says Orson Aguilar, Executive Director at The Greenlining Institute.
