In her brilliant new book, The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet, activist and eco-communicator Leah Thomas put forth a helpful introduction to understanding the intersection between environmentalism, racism, and privilege. She joins the show this week to talk about the book, how she first got inspired to study environmentalism, how her activism took off with post championing "Environmentalists for Black Lives Matter," and why the climate and environmental movements desperately need to improve with an intersectional approach to action and justice.
