Chispa Texas Director / ecastillo@lcv.org
Elida Castillo is the Program Director of Chispa Texas, a Latino grassroot organizing program in Texas that launched in April of 2021. Elida’s community organizing and civic engagement efforts in Texas have invigorated the environmental movement with new leaders, increased voter participation and held elected officials accountable in between elections, to improve the quality of life of those communities and the health of their residents.

“Latine and BIPOC communities disproportionately suffer from the effects of pollution and climate change. It’s time for our leadership and elected officials in Texas to enact policies that will ensure the livelihoods of our most vulnerable communities and hold the fossil fuel and petrochemical industries accountable.”
