AIRE: Celebrating Latina and Latino Leadership in Environmental Justice

November 6, 2021
12:00 pm
- 2:00 pm

Join us at Cultivando on Saturday, November 6, at noon as we celebrate Latino and Latina leadership in environmental justice and provide an update on the AIRE program.

We will watch the pre-recorded event “Air Quality Monitoring at the Suncor Refinery – What it means to the Latino Community,” which features Congresswoman Diana DeGette (CO-01) and Dr. Detlev Helmig with Boulder A.I.R.

Following this short video, we will have a panel of knowledgeable speakers to provide an update on the AIRE program and answer your specific questions. Our tentative panel includes:

  • Representative Alex Valdez (CO-05)
  • Aracely Navarro (Cultivando)
  • Shaina Oliver (Moms Clean Air Force)
  • Ean Tafoya (GreenLatinos)
  • Kate Merlin (WildEarth Guardians)

We will end with a celebration honoring leaders in the Latina and Latino community who are making a difference in protecting communities, fighting for environmental justice, and making changes at the state.

Please follow our COVID-19 precautions. We highly encourage participants to be vaccinated and to wear a mask. If eating or drinking, please find a spot 6 feet from others.

Please RSVP so we can ensure we have enough box lunches available from Tamales By Sara. RSVP here.

We look forward to seeing you and ensuring that we provide information to empower each of us to take action to ensure our voices are heard to stop the Suncor refinery pollution.

This event is sponsored by Cultivando, Moms Clean Air Force, EcoMadres, GreenLatinos, WildEarth Guardians, CSU Center for Environmental Justice, and North Range Concerned Citizens.
