This summer, Chispa Arizona traveled with 30 members, staff, partners and volunteers in two big, white vans to visit the Grand Canyon National Park. For three days, we camped, shared stories and admired the starry, clear night sky in the middle of the park. For many of us, it was our first time camping -- for many more, it was the first seeing the sacred landscape of the Canyon.
Our purpose as an organization is always to honor the connection we have to nature, as Arizonans and as Latinos. This trip and opportunity would not have been possible without the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).
This program allows for people like us to road trip, visit and enjoy the outdoors with our families and friends. We thank Senator Sinema for supporting the LWCF earlier this year and for her continued support through sponsorship of S1081 which would fund LWCF. Public parks are for all, and it is our duty to protect and conserve them.

Senator Sinema recognizes the importance of our parks for our state, our economy and our families. We hope the entire Arizona delegation follow her example and support funding of this critical program.
Executive Director of Chispa Arizona
