S2E10: Centering Justice in the Climate Crisis with Reverend Yearwood

Two women having a conversation while one of them wears a black hoodie

What will happen if we don’t change our environmental impact NOW? Where do you fit in the climate crisis conversation? In today’s episode we’re diving into these questions with Founder & President of Hip Hop Caucus and community activist Reverend Yearwood. He shares with us a powerful message on the weaving of social justice and climate change, the context for modern-day environmental movements, and what still needs to happen for justice to be the center of the climate crisis.

We’re exploring:

  • Reverend Yearwood shares the catalyst to his involvement in the green movement
  • The extractive mentality of the fossil fuel industry 
  • A surprising connection between the origins of hip hop and environmental justice 
  • Why artists should connect to a struggle to evolve creatively
  • Solidarity versus charity when you’re part of a movement
  • The impact of poverty and environmental risks on Black communities
  • Why we need to create a movement involving EVERYBODY (beyond the siloed progressive movement dominated by white people)
  • A message to ALL artists to use your voice and platform for climate advocacy
  • Reverend Yearwood’s TOP 4 things YOU can do to create change 
  • And so much more!
