New Chesapeake Bay Area Poll to Show Voter Attitudes on Conservation

Telepresser to Highlight Latino Voter Results, Support for National Recreation Area


WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, Sept. 15, Hispanic Access Foundation will hold a bilingual telepresser highlighting the Latino results of the Chesapeake Bay area voter survey on conservation and climate change, as well as support for establishing a new National Recreation Area for the ChesapeakeBay, which would be a unit of the National Park Service. Spanish interpretation will be provided.


The poll surveyed the views of voters in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. on the most pressing issues involving our lands, waters and climate change. Results show Latinos ultimately support increasing public access to the bay and helping secure funding for its restoration. This event will provide media with a brief analysis of the Latino results, along with commentary from local community leaders and a Q&A session.
