Environmental Justice Through A Trans Lens

Episode Description

What do the struggles for environmental justice and trans liberation have in common? In this Earth Day episode, Imara examines the shared goals and strategies of these two movements. First, she talks with educator and storyteller Vanessa Raditz about the inherent queerness of nature and the philosophy underlying conservative attacks on trans rights and climate action. Next, she’s joined by organizer and artist, Big Wind Carpenter, who shares what they learned while protesting environmental racism at the Dakota Access Pipeline and on the Wind River reservation.
