Protect vulnerable communities & the environment

Have you checked out Green Girl Leah

Leah is an intersectional environmental activist who is passionate about exploring the relationship between social justice and environmentalism. Her goal? To make things more equal for everyone and nicer for Mother Earth. 

Through her article on The Good Trade, Leah Explains what environmental justice means and how we can take action to ensure a healthier future for all. Intersectional environmentalism advocates for both the protection of people and the planet. It identifies the ways in which injustices happening to marginalized communities and the earth are related. Think: Flint Water Crisis and food deserts (neighborhoods without access to fresh produce) for example. Intersectional Environmentalism brings wrongs done to the most vulnerable communities, and the earth, to the forefront while acknowledging social inequality.

Mother Earth and the individuals who live here are not healthy and safe if only some are drinking clean water, breathing clean air and can access fresh produce.
