The National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Youth’s Perspectives on Climate Justice Workgroup, established in 2016, just released a new comprehensive report detailing their recommendations for environmental protection and youth engagement to the EPA. We’ll be joined by members of that workgroup, Anthony Torres and Eriqah Vincent, to discuss the extensive process in putting the report together and their recommendations, which include promoting youth leaders and addressing the health impacts of climate change. This episode is a must listen for organizations who promote youth leadership in their work.

For more, check out the Press Release and Report.

We’ll also be joined by leaders of the Endangered Species Coalition to discuss ongoing attacks on the Endangered Species Act, public lands and waters protections, and climate action. Despite strong public support and an extensive track record of preventing more than 99 percent of listed species from going extinct, the Endangered Species Act is being attacked under the guise of “reform” by the current Administration and politicians on Capitol Hill as part of their polluter-friendly deregulatory agenda.
