WHAT: A reception to kick off Nuestro Río, a national Latino-led campaign that seeks to preserve the Colorado River and its tributaries for generations to come. This national campaign to engage Latinos in this conservation effort is the first of its kind.
WHO: Actress and philanthropist, Celinés Toribio will welcome and introduce the goals of Nuestro Rio to invited guests. Department of the Interior, Secretary Ken Salazar has also been invited to speak about his views of the Colorado River and the growing demands on the river’s resources.
WHY: Latinos have a rich cultural history connected to the Colorado River, and now the River and its tributaries are under threat. The mighty River is drying up due to consumption, drought and climate change. In fact the River no longer reaches Mexico’s Sea of Cortez as it had for millions of years.
Latinos and other Americans in the southwest depend upon the River to sustain their way of life and bolster the economy through recreation and tourism. Nuestro Río‘s goal is to educate decision-makers and the public about the need protect this lifeline in the West. They have begun by collecting 10,000 Latino signatures on a letter to Sec. Salazar and other decision-makers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming to urge action on this challenge.

Celines in America:
I’m super excited and happy with the entire team of Levantate, Telemundo’s popular morning show. They have invited me to co-host the show on Thursday, July 7 and Friday, July 8 LIVE from Miami. Tune in from 7AM to 10AM. I’m packing now and look forward to sharing good times with all my friends over at Telemundo. Ladies and gents, I don’t know what to wear… dress or pants? Blue or red? What do you thinks?! Help me! Love you all!
As a Latina woman, I’m honored to have been invited by the United Service Organization (USO) to visit soldiers who are serving in the US Military. I feel a sense of responsibility to bring them a bit of joy and happiness, and attempt to express our gratitude for their service. Knowing that I will have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with troops on the frontline, individuals and families who have scarified all for our freedom, fills me with happiness and an indescribable pride.
