Grants to this Grantee
for the Chispa program  
Chispa is a Spanish word that translates to "spark." This program within the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund aims to deepen engagement with Latino communities on climate and clean energy issues. Latinos are among the worst impacted and least involved in mainstream environmental groups, yet are among the most committed to supporting strong action to curb climate pollution. Through community-based organizing and issue campaigns, Chispa achieves local wins, led by Latino families, that create momentum for strong nationwide action on climate change. Chispa’s work also helps mainstream environmental organizations become more inclusive and diverse so they can better represent all communities in the U.S.
