Chair Sutley Speaks at LULAC National Convention

On July 15th, Chair Nancy Sutley spoke at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) National Convention about the importance of building a new clean energy economy that will create enormous economic opportunities for Latinos and all Americans alike. LULAC is the oldest and largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country.
"We can work to build an industry where we provide opportunities to the Latino American community, a critical part of the American workforce," said Chair Sutley. "Building a new clean energy economy will create enormous economic opportunities for Latinos, and it is important that people throughout the country become a part of the green economy.
For nearly a century, LULAC has tackled many of the challenging issues Latinos have faced in a wide variety of areas, through community-based programs. Chair Sutley was honored to participate in this conference.
While in Puerto Rico, she also had the opportunity to tour the San Juan Bay Estuary Program, one of 28 national estuaries recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency. EPA’s National Estuary Program was established by Congress in 1987 to improve the quality of estuaries of national importance and to develop plans for attaining or maintaining water quality in an estuary.
San Juan Bay is the first tropical island estuary to take part in the program. It contains coral communities, seagrass beds, and mangrove forests, which are all designated critical habitats, and it is the home of seventeen endangered plant species and eight endangered animal species. The estuary also houses 160 bird, 19 reptile/amphibian, 124 fish, and 300 wetland plant species.
