Welcome to our planet—Planeta G!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our newest project, a bi-weekly web series about the intersection between the environmental movement and our Latinx identity. Together, we will unpack the latest news, tweets, and memes of the moment, while centering Latinx activists, our friends, and our families. Because of COVID-19, the episodes are recorded in our homes, which opens up a world of opportunities to invite people from all over the world to join us on the show.
According to a recent Yale study, over 70% of Latinx people in the United States are concerned about the environment. Latinx people play an integral part in the environmental movement, and it’s about time our experiences are brought to the forefront.
It’s no coincidence that Latinx people and people of color are most impacted by the climate crisis. We’re often not given the same access to adequate healthcare, education, and housing as our white counterparts. We need to rise up as a community and assert our rightful space at the table.
On the show, we will discuss topics such as climate activism, intersectionality, voting and election suppression, and single-use plastic. Special guests, from popular influencers to Greenpeace Latinx staff, will come on each show to have these crucial conversations and share how you can take action!
