New York City Organizer
What is the moment that you decided to work towards climate justice?
As a child, witnessing the devastation of Hurricane Katrina made a lasting imprint on me. It was a traumatic event for so many, and though I lived in New York at the time I wanted to prepare myself and my community for such an event.
What are the strengths that you bring to movement building?
Empathy, an aptitude for listening, and strategic thinking are all strengths that make me a better organizer. Empathy especially goes a long way.
When you were a kid, what was your favorite activity?
Exploring tidal pools at the beach
