Check out these videos of young environmental justice organizers created by the 1000 Voice Archive and the Environmental Justice and Climate Change Initiative. The videos feature four young organizers explaining how they realized their calling to fight for environmental justice. This project is part of the 1000 Voices Archive, a "national collection of video stories created by filmmakers and communities across the country" that is being used to "encourage community conversations."
The short videos introduce Kari, Tony, Nia and Lllai, four youth activists who are engaging their communities in the green movement while also advocating for EJ issues. Their work ranges from conducting energy audits in lower income households to addressing climate change in a human rights framework. Take a look at these inspiring and powerful stories today.
