S2 Ep 8: Always for Our People w/ Elizabeth Yeampierre

Returning from a brief hiatus due to COVID-19, Season 2 of The Coolest Show on Climate Change is back with weekly episodes. We could not return with a more insightful interview than this week’s conversation with Elizabeth Yeampierre, Executive Director of UPROSE, Brooklyn’s, oldest Latino community-based organization. UPROSE is an intergenerational, multi-racial, nationally recognized community organization, which promotes sustainability and resiliency in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood. Rev Yearwood and Elizabeth discuss the mutual pain and mutual hope in movement building and the work of aligning climate solutions and racial justice as one mission. If you need to feel some love today, listen to this episode.
