Francisco Segovia, executive director of Communities Organizing Latinx Power and Action (COPAL), speaks about civic engagement, community connections and environmental justice as key components for their work with the Latinx community, especially in an election and Census year.
“Our job as a community is to participate in the larger vision of Minnesota,” Francisco says. “I believe that sometimes systems move fast without us.
