CONSERVATION AND STEWARDSHIP THROUGH FAITH AND SPIRITUALITY
Working with the faith community comes natural for us and helps us to achieve our goal of connecting Latinos to the natural world. Engaging people with nature and the environment, through their faith, is a powerful experience. Many believe that caring for the creation is a vital part of their faith. We feel it is important to invest resources and think of innovative approaches to empower our community to live a healthier life in body, mind, and spirit.
LEADER TO DEFENDER
Defensores believe that we have the potential to make a real and positive change in Latino communities throughout the watershed. Through meaningful connections, we invite the Latino community to share their love for, interest in, and desire for a clean environment. We bring about opportunities to enjoy, learn, participate, and lead in creating a cleaner, green world for themselves, their families, and their community. Climate change and limited access to green spaces has an especially profound impact on communities of color resulting in negative effects with high levels of chronic community diseases.
