ACCEPTING PROPOSALS: Member Pláticas

Member pláticas (chats) at the 2020 GreenLatinos National Summit will help to facilitate opportunities for networking and connection building. The diversity of the GreenLatinos' familia is one of its strengthens. We are a community of individuals from across the country, different ethnic/cultural backgrounds, different gender/sexual identities, and age. We are a collective of community members, academics, professionals, students, veterans, and activists working to protect our communities and la madre tierra.

 

We are accepting proposals for member pláticas until March 31, 2020, and proposals will be announced in April 2020.
