Effects of climate change on communities of color & how to make a difference with Jasmine Sanders


When I think about the impending doom that climate change will inevitably bring in the coming years, and the effects that we have already begun to see, it makes me nervous. Individual action is great, but climate change needs to be addressed on a mass scale. We need people educating the public and pressuring politicians to enact sustainable policies. And today's featured sustainable brown girl is doing just that.
