S4 Ep 12: We Shall Breathe w/ Brandi Williams

The fossil fuel industry is dying out as we transition to clean energy and electric vehicles. But in order to hold on to dear life they are trying to make a big pivot to plastics as their new big business.

Join us at the We Shall Breathe Summit to learn from the leaders on the frontlines who are challenging the petrochemical industry and join the fight.
