More than 62 million people living in the U.S. are Latino or about one in every five. Latinos make up the second largest demographic, yet Latinos are not a monolithic voting bloc. While the Latino community varies in political party affiliation, a new poll has found that the overwhelmingly majority support strong policies to protect the ocean and prevent plastic pollution. According to the U.S. Latinos and the Ocean Poll, conducted for Azul, Latino voters want the nation to invest more, and are willing to pay more themselves, to advance ocean justice.
