    S3 Ep 20: Next Step Up w/ Elise Tolbert

    Racism is a public health crisis that fuels the Black community’s lack of trust in the government. Incidents such as the Tuskegee experiment and the Flint water crisis are examples of environmental racism, also categorized as genocide. Rev Yearwood speaks with Elise Tolbert, Founder and Executive Director of Next Step Up and the Deputy Director of Partner Engagement at Climate Action Campaign. Elise and Rev Yearwood discuss the need for young leadership, Black mental health, and the challenge to thrive in a society built to destroy you.

    S3 Ep 18: Youth Vs Apocalypse w/ Isha Clarke & Aniya Butler

    S3 Ep 18: Youth Vs Apocalypse w/ Isha Clarke & Aniya Butler

    Institutionalized groups want young, BIack, and Indigenous organizers to be inspirational and play a superficial role. But oftentimes, they don’t want to fund their work to effectively dismantle systems of oppression. It is easier to do the work that coddles one’s privilege because they don’t have to confront their privilege or the realities that communities first and foremost affected are experiencing. Rev Yearwood speaks with Isha Clark, Co-founder of Youth Vs Apocalypse, and Aniya Butler, Hip Hop & Climate Justice coordinator. They share with us the struggle to gain funding and support for young people-led organizations; the importance of doing radical (root-addressing) work; and taking power out of systems of oppression and putting them into community-led solutions that center liberation.

Awesome! They help explain why climate change is all about helping people

It’s not just about sea level rise and weather pattern changes. It helped me gain a new perspective, and why this problem is so important!
