     Access to nature and its many benefits is a human right.
While California is recognized as a biodiversity hotspot around the world, communities of color in rural and urban regions are four times as likely to live in nature-deprived areas. Colonization and climate change have contributed to the loss of nature, threatening wildlife and negatively affecting the quality of life for many residents in the state.
Join Pedro Hernández and José González for Mapping Migraciones: Nature is for Everyone, a discussion on Audubon California and Latino Outdoors’ efforts to advance Assembly Bill 30, The Human Right to Nature.  This bill would make California the first state to formally recognize the human right to nature and address many of the historical shortcomings of the environmental conservation movement.
When we uplift the stories and experiences of communities of color, we give power back to our communities furthering environmental justice at the local, state, and federal level. Join us to learn how you can advance this critical work on both the state and national levels!
