This week on #Latism, we have a DOUBLE TREAT for you. There’s so much going on at Latism, we’ve decided to DOUBLE the party!

Please read below and BE THERE! [we know you will]

For the 1st half: 8PM EST to 9 PM EST

We are celebrating la MADRE TIERRA!

A group of our Latinos hermanos and hermanas – including @dancingsparrow, @lancerios and @ketye –  who are going to Cochabamba for the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth.

According to a Sierra Club National Survey, 66% of Latino(a)s in the United States, work and live close to toxic sites, add to that, the African Americans and Asians that live in highly polluted urban neighborhoods, the farmer migrants that are exposed to pesticides when picking US food and the Indigenous peoples that are having their lands mined and degraded and we have a big hot mess that makes the US majority generally and environmentally disadvantaged.

We’ll be talking about how this issue affects all of us in the US, and the kinds of things we can do everyday, as Latinos in Social Media, to create awareness about this subject.

WHEN: Thrusday, April 15th
TIME: 8 pm – 9pm EST
