Natural Resource Defense Council
Adrianna Quintero is the founder and director of the Natural Resource Defense Council’s Latino Advocacy program and a senior attorney. Adrianna launched NRDC’s Latino outreach along with the website, La Onda Verde or LOV, in 2004 with the report, “Hidden Danger, Environmental Health Threats in the Latino Community,” which highlighted impacts on Latinos from environmental contamination. Adrianna was proud to work with Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis who was then in the House of Representatives, in developing a report that recognized the disproportionate environmental impacts faced by many in the Latino community. Most recently, Adrianna founded Voces Verdes and aims to connect Latino organizations, business and community leaders with government decision-makers on climate and clean air issues. She currently sits on the board of the U.S. Climate Action Network and Presente.org, and is recipient of Latino Leaders Magazine Innovator Award 2011.
