Why Intersectional Environmentalism Matters

Why Intersectional Environmentalism Matters

We can't talk about eco-friendly and sustainable living without understanding how environmentalism as we know it has not been accessible to all in the past, and still isn't today. Intersectional environmentalism puts environmentalism and social justice squarely together, and in this episode, we spoke about all things sustainability and equality with Carolyn Finney, the author of Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors. Carolyn shared her own experiences around being Black in the outdoors, serving on the National Parks Advisory Board and what intersectional environmentalism means to her.
