StoryCorps Historias: A Green Future
By Candace Murphy
Albuquerque, New Mexico –
Environmental advocate Christina Ortiz de Jones and energy attorney Laura Sanchez are both latina and represent a near majority of New Mexicans but a minority within environmental movement. In this conversation, colleagues Christina and Laura envision their perfect green futures, and suggest a fresh approach to discussing environmental issues. But, as Laura explains, their position presents some unique challenges. Christina Ortiz de Jones, and Laura Sanchez. Their conversation was recorded last May at a StoryCorps mobile booth in Albuquerque. The StoryCorps Historias Albuquerque project was made possible with support from the New Mexico Humanities Council and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
