Last Friday, I attended a Climate Innovation Lab at Florida International University, put on by Sachamama. Sachamama is a self-professed, “nonprofit on a mission to build support for 100% clean energy economy and sustainable attitudes, behaviors, and lifestyles within Latin communities.” The purpose of the day was to provide a forum for college students to voice their climate concerns and brainstorm ways that they can address those concerns and make a difference in their communities.… Read More

Although almost everyone was there to see big names like Kali Uchis and Gorillaz, III Points isn’t only about the music.
