Overview:
Our most basic public health protections are under attack. At the same time our ability to provide input into the decision-making process has been whittled away. These actions are especially dire for communities of color, low-income communities, and indigenous communities, who already face disproportionate impacts from pollution, sagging infrastructure, and climate change. While United States Congressional Members of color and green organizations are stepping up to protect our communities, there is more work to be done to reverse historic wrongs and current actions being taken by the current Administration.
In episode six of Think 100%, we sit down with United States Senator Cory Booker to dig into the challenges and solutions. Also joining us are leaders from Green Peace USA, an organization at the front-lines of the biggest fights to free us from fossil fuels that are causing climate change. The League of Conservation Voters will also be dropping by to let us know just how well Members of Congress are doing to protect our communities and planet. You don’t want to miss this episode.
