This week I weigh in on Black Lives Matter, connect it to the climate and sustainability crises, and explain why I’m joining Extinction Rebellion’s next Rebel Wave from June 12-21. A big shout-out to Osita Nwanevu’s excellent February essay “End the GOP” in The New Republic and thanks to everyone who joined the workshop series “Stories from the Future” that I’m facilitating with Dylan Harris as part of ACUD MACHT NEU’s Collective Practices program. Check out the stream of the first workshop while it’s on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=861674787724449.
In this episode, I reflect on how personal action and government action can pick up each other’s slack in dealing with our biggest problems — using the examples of coronavirus and climate change. And two Greek women’s delicious vegan food is giving me hope.
