Join the Fight for Climate Action
Around the world, women and communities of color are most impacted by the climate crisis. They are leading the movement for climate action and a just transition to our clean energy future.
Get to know a few climate champions leading the fight for a just, livable future, and then join them in the fight for bold climate action by demanding the transition to a clean energy economy:
LaTricea Adams, Founder of Black Millenials for Flint
When LaTricea Adams first heard about lead contamination in Flint, Michigan’s water, she put out an urgent call to demand access to the fundamental right to clean water in the community. She founded Black Millennials For Flint, a national environmental justice organization taking collective action to end the lead poisoning crisis. Among BM4F’s advocacy efforts, LaTricea developed ambassador programs to provide environmental education and voter outreach to Black and Latino communities. In 2021, LaTricea was appointed to the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council, where she brings her expertise as a fierce advocate for the transition to a clean energy economy that centers environmental and racial justice.

Beatriz Soto, Protégete Director
Growing up as a climate migrant to the United States, Beatriz understood the critical importance of clean air, safe drinking water, and climate action. Now in Garfield County, Colorado, she sees her Latino community at the forefront of the climate crisis, from raging wildfires, to the growing threat of aridification, and polluted air and water from the oil and gas industry. With Protégete, Beatriz mobilizes an inclusive environmental movement with solutions to address the root causes of issues impacting the Latino community.

Elizabeth Velasco, Firefighter & Spanish Interpreter
In 2020, when fires ripped through Elizabeth’s Colorado community, she jumped into action. She provided translation services to ensure Spanish-speaking neighbors understood the evacuation procedures and had access to important resources. As an emergency responder and public information officer, Elizabeth continues to fight for community resilience in the face of worsening drought and wildfires caused by the climate crisis.
