Community Power Nevada: Unidxs En Acción (United In Action)
Living in one of the top 20 most polluted counties in the country, a group of Latinx community activists in Southern Nevada decide to take the air quality crisis into their own hands.
Nevada is facing an air quality crisis. Living in one of the top 20 most polluted counties in the country, a group of Latinx community activists in Southern Nevada decide to take matters into their own hands.
Recognizing the transportation sector as the largest contributor to local greenhouse gas emissions and other health-harming pollutants, they demand policies that will clean up the air their families breathe. Through grassroots organizing projects with Chispa Nevada, like neighborhood air monitoring and public demonstrations that fuse activism with cultural identity, these dedicated community members push for change and showcase their own unique brand of community power.
Community Power is an initiative of The Redford Center, in collaboration with League of Conservation Voters and Chispa, showcasing local activists, storytellers, and culture-makers as visionary leaders with the collective power to enact lasting environmental change.
