    Why Abolition is an Environmental Justice Issue

    Hosts Isabella Killius and Hale Masaki explore the intersections of racial justice and environmentalism within the context of slavery and how slavery was never eradicated, it simply evolved. In the second half of the episode, lifelong organizer Taz Gaines joins as our special guest to dive deep into these issues and to establish why abolition and the fight for justice are crucial to winning a Green New Deal. 🌅

    We're Here To Stay

    We're Here To Stay

    We are all anxious about climate change. But what can we do about it? That's what we want to explore on this podcast - we want to go deep, and talk about the work we need to do and that's already being done to realize an equitable, livable future for all of us (and create millions of good jobs in the process!). Sunrise Tennessee podcast hosts Sri Adabala, Isabella Killius, Hale Masaki, and Cassie Jackson talk about this and more on our first episode of Rocky Top Sunrise! We also chat with our friend and special guest, Rick Herron, about how we can win a Green New Deal (starting right here at home!) and build a world where we all can thrive.
