WHAT: The California League of Conservation Voters Education Fund will release the results of a groundbreaking statewide poll of Latino voters’ environmental values and opinions. Participants in the briefing will hear a presentation by pollster Ben Tulchin and reactions from community leaders and advocates from throughout California, to be followed by reporter Q&A.

CLCV Education Fund will also hold a series of forums in Oakland (October 4), Fresno (October 10), Los Angeles (October 17) and San Diego (October 24) with regional leaders to discuss the results of the poll and next steps; more information at www.clcvedfund.org/

WHY: Approximately 14 million Latinos reside in California, making up 38% of the state’s total population. CLCV Education Fund conducted the first-ever polling of the environmental values of California Latino voters over a decade ago; the 2012 poll was commissioned in order to better understand Latino voters’ specific environmental concerns and values and whether there exists a “performance gap” on environmental issues. The new data will help advocates for California’s Latino communities and for the environment more effectively communicate with voters and encourage better environmental leadership from elected leaders who represent this important and growing segment of the electorate.
