Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month following Indigenous People’s Day by participating in Hispanic Access Foundation’s Our Heritage, Our Planet Film Week. This week, come and celebrate life with us through the stories of Latino, Black, Indigenous and other people of color with roots in nature - learning, experiencing, and uplifting the nexus between human communities and the lands, waterways, and ocean we call home.
The festival is 100% virtual, free to attend for all, and will feature interactive discussions between artists, communities, and decision-makers on environmental topics. Click here to GET YOUR TICKET.
