Elevating Latinx voices to protect our ocean
#LatinosMarinos is a program of Azul, a grassroots-led movement that elevates the participation of the Latinx community when it comes to protecting our ocean and coastal communities.
The Latinx population is a key constituency in Rhode Island, and #LatinosMarinos is building a unique space to elevate voices from frontline communities, through storytelling, roots, and culture to support activism and leadership in the movement to protect our ocean and its marine life. Azul will coordinate efforts to support the international 30×30 initiative to fully protect 30% of our ocean (and land) by 2030, and do so by using equity and inclusivity lens.
Azul is a grassroots organization working to conserve marine resources. We treasure the life-sustaining force of the ocean, as well as the physical and spiritual nourishment it provides us. We are a Gente powered and led effort, focused first on celebrating our rich Latino conservation traditions and connecting them to current solutions. Our work is based in authentic engagement, community building, and collaboration.
