YUCCA (Youth United for Climate Crisis Action) is a youth climate branch of Earth Care, a local New Mexico nonprofit that trains young activists in social and environmental justice organizing and supports intergenerational campaigns to advance climate justice, transformative education, sustainability, democracy, and civil rights. Earth Care's work is focused on growing grassroots leadership and civic infrastructure from the ground up.
YUCCA's Steering Committee is comprised of young leaders trained in organizing who represent the diverse communities of northern New Mexico including Indigenous, Latinx, Chicanx, and low-income communities.
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, YUCCA is also setting up a mutual aid network within the state of New Mexico, providing food and resources to our community.
