“We imagine a world where young people (especially busy working professionals!) are civically engaged on a daily basis. Where instead of being depressed after listening to the news, wondering how the heck they can do anything to make an impact, they leave feeling activated instead. Ready to engage their friends & colleagues in difficult conversations about local, national, & global issues.”

“Intersectional Environmentalism is an inclusive version of environmentalism that advocates for both the protection of people & the planet. It identifies the ways in which injustices happening to marginalized communities & the earth are interconnected. It brings injustices done to the most vulnerable communities, and the earth, to the forefront & does not minimize or silence social inequality.”
