Woods & Wilds: The Podcast | Ruddy Turnstone
Join our hosts Elizabeth Lashay from SlayTheMic and Kimala Luna from Dogwood Alliance as they sit down with climate activist Ruddy Turnstone.
Ruddy Turnstone (she/they): Based in southeastern so-called Florida, Ruddy is on the Steering Committee for the Community Hotline for Incarcerated People (CHIP) which was founded in April of 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. CHIP is an all-volunteer abolitionist hotline that provides direct support and advocacy for people incarcerated locally and does not discriminate based on the charges/convictions people have been given. CHIP's work has been vital in getting people connected to resources, loved ones and on occasion, getting released. When not doing hotline work, Ruddy provides direct action climb trainings for Earth First! and non-profit organizations, participates in food sharings through Lake Worth Food Not Bombs, provides digital and in person direct action trainings, and dabbles in video editing and podcasting making. In varying degrees over the years, Ruddy has organized around environmental, climate justice, immigrants rights, indigenous sovereignty, and prison abolition for over 10 years.
