February 21, 2012 by Jennifer Brandt
Fernando Arau, who is best known among the Spanish–speaking public in the U.S. as having hosted Despierta América on Univision, agreed last week to be the spokesperson for HAF’s campaign “Latinos Advocating for Environment.”
During his first interview on a media tour, which takes him through Colorado and New Mexico, he was asked why he supports this campaign.
“I remember when I was a kid, the best memories I have are of when we went on excursions with my dad and my uncle to the lake, when we went fishing, hiking, mountain climbing,” said Arau.
Arau believes that this is a universal experience shared by Latinos in this country and that it is time that Latinos speak up to protect our parks so that all children will inherit clean air, water, wildlife, and lands to do recreation activities with family. He signed the HAF petition and is leading his Facebook and twitter fans to do the same.
We are looking for 1,500 signatures by the end of the month. Add your voice now, and urge others to do the same!
