Climate change is making life harder for Latinos and other communities of color.
A groundbreaking 2019 study estimated that Black and Latino populations experience 56% and 63% more pollution respectively than their activities cause.
Cities across the U.S. will experience harsher extreme weather events and increases in daily temperatures, and some might no longer be inhabitable.
