Podcast: Caroline Gleich Explores Environmental Justice Activism

These are tumultuous times. If you’re itching to do something, you’re likely asking the same questions as skier, mountaineer, and activist Caroline Gleich: what can we do to advocate for environmental justice for all, fight for underrepresented voices, and protect public lands? There’s no straightforward answer, but Gleich sat down U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva to explore the potential solutions. Grijalva serves as the U.S. Representative for Arizona's 3rd congressional district and has been working in public service for the last four decades. His most recent work on Capitol Hill involves serving as the chair of the House Natural Resources Committee, and he hopes to pass legislation protecting our nation’s natural treasures for generations to come. His bill The American Public Lands and Waters Climate Solutions Act (HR 5435), aims to completely reduce all greenhouse emissions on public lands and waters by 2040.

The two talked on her podcast The Caroline Gleich Show about how climate, environment, and racial/social justice are all deeply intertwined issues. Gleich and Grijalva became acquainted when Gleich helped testify in front of the U.S. Congress for his bill The American Public Lands and Waters Climate Solutions Act (HR 5435) back in February. As someone with an extensive track record of fighting for underrepresented voices, Grijalva has a lot of wisdom and insight surrounding these issues. Be sure to tune in to the discussion!
