Black Environmental Leader Spotlight
Founder of Intersectional Environmentalist (IE)
We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on Leah Thomas, eco-communicator and founder of Intersectional Environmentalist (IE)!
In May 2020, following the murder of George Floyd, Leah called on the environmental community to make a pledge to Black lives and commit to a journey of intersectional advocacy. The post went viral, and online communities began looking for spaces to listen to and amplify these silenced voices.
Today, IE is a platform for resources, information and action steps to dismantle systems of oppression within the environmental movement led by sustainability activists. Learn more about their work here.
Learn more about Leah's career path in our Green Careers Webinar Series.
