Latinos Keeping the American Dream Alive


"Latinos still very much believe in the American dream.  We do.  We believe it.  We still believe that our government can make change," says Adrianna Quintero, Senior Attorney for NRDC.  While many Americans have given up on our government, Latinos still believe that change can be made.  "We need more people to believe that we can get it done if we're ever going to see any kind of success," says Quintero on the government implementing measures to combat climate change, "there are not going to be easy lifts, but it is doable and this is still the greatest country in the world."
