COPAL (Comunidades organizando el poder y la acción latina) is an organization formed in 2018 that seeks to unite Latinos in Minnesota through community-based democratic practice that builds racial, gender, social, and economic justice. Organizers from COPAL will discuss the unique framework the group has developed for drawing connections between the climate crisis and forced migration from Central America to the United States, and for educating and empowering immigrant communities to advocate for policy change that advances justice for people of color most affected by environmental catastrophe.
