We put three of our favorite environmental activists and policy advocates in the same virtual room together for a conversation. Here is what former Rep. Karen Clark, Women’s Environmental Institute co-founder Jacqueline Zita, and sustainable agriculture student and activist Priscilla Trinh talked about in June 2021.
