Our public lands, and the people and wildlife who rely on them, face unprecedented challenges. HECHO’s mission to empower and support Hispanics and Latinos to engage on public lands and conservation policy has never been more important.
HECHO has partnered with and is a fiscally-sponsored program of the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). Your donation will go directly to HECHO to help us elevate and amplify Hispanic and Latino perspectives and ensure that Hispanic and Latino leaders are at the table to represent our community of hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts who have enjoyed public lands for generations. It’s our culture, it’s our tradition, it’s our history.
With more than 50 million Hispanics living in the United States and over 6,000 Latino elected and appointed officials, we are important stakeholders for conservation. HECHO’s unique role is to educate, empower, and create opportunities for these voices to be heard.
Whether it is fishing in the San Juan River, hiking in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, hunting in the San Luis Valley, or camping in the Coconino National Forest, Latinos have been enjoying the great outdoors for generations. It connects us to our ancestors and guides how we see our future.
Help us expand our already impactful voice for public lands conservation policies and issues by investing in the future of HECHO. With the National Wildlife Federation as our fiscal sponsor, we are uniquely positioned to maximize the impact of your gift today.
