Embracing Intersectional Environmentalism: Leah Thomas & Kristy Drutman

By Ravel Media

Because environmentalism should be inclusive of both people and the planet. Leah Thomas, founder of, and Kristy Drutman, the podcaster behind Brown Girl Green, use the power of their platforms to help us rethink what it means to be an environmentalist in 2020.While the fight for environmental justice isn’t a new one, it’s not one that’s historically been talked about enough within the environmental movement. But we can't separate the fight for racial equity from the fight against climate change, and the need to link the two only become more urgent as time passes. In this episode, Leah Thomas and Kristy Drutman share their knowledge and help us reflect on the tools we have to become advocates, too.Featured in this episode: Leah Thomas & Kristy DrutmanHosted & Produced by Gale StraubA production of Ravel MediaSponsored by Sierra Designs, Tilley, and DannerJoin the She Explores Podcast community on FacebookVisit & Follow Us on InstagramResourcesWomen Featured on the episode:Leah Thomas: Instagram & WebsiteKristy Drutman: Instagram & WebsiteIntersectional Environmentalist: Instagram & WebsiteListen to Brown Girl Green Podcast: Apple Podcasts & SpotifyGreen 2.0 ReportArticles Referenced:Vogue:  Why Every Environmentalist Should Be Anti-Racist by Leah ThomasHuffington Post: We Don't Have to Halt Climate Action to Fight Racism by Mary Annaïse HeglarAdditional Helpful ArticlesSierra Club: Racism is Killing the Planet by Hop HopkinsScientific American: Redling Practices Increased Climate Change Burden in Minority Neighborhoods She Explores Landing PageRavel MediaSponsors and Discount CodesSierra Designs: Learn more about the Reach Out Campaign.Learn more about Big City MountaineersDanner: Learn more about the Trail 2650'sTilley: Get 15% off your order by using code EXPLORE at checkout; expires July 31, 2020.Episodes air weekly on Wednesdays-- subscribe wherever you listen so you never miss an episode.Music is by Meydan, Lee Rosevere, & Kai Engel
