Latinxs and the Environment
An Initiative at UC Berkeley.
The Latinxs and the Environment Initiative is a 3 year old effort started in UC Berkeley that seeks to establish a comprehensive program designed to generate knowledge and encourage increased study and research on Latinxs and the environment—both in the U.S. and abroad with the coordinated participation of policy makers, community based organizations (CBOs) and the academic community.

As the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) continues to threaten daily protocol, we are encouraging our students and peers to wash their hands whenever possible and to avoid touching sensitive areas on their face like their mouth, nose and eyes. As UC Berkeley has chosen to go completely online until the end of the Spring semester, we are also adapting. We are postponing guest speakers for our seminar and planning on meeting online through options like Google Hangouts and Zoom.
We also want to acknowledge that this disease has become somewhat racialized but we in no way believe that a proper response to the issue is xenophobia. We encourage everyone to take care of themselves while also thinking about more vulnerable populations like those who are immunocompromised and more susceptible to the virus like the elderly.
