Publisher's Summary

From the activist who coined the term comes a primer on intersectional environmentalism for the next generation of activists looking to create meaningful, inclusive, and sustainable change. 

The Intersectional Environmentalist examines the inextricable link between environmentalism, racism, and privilege and promotes awareness of the fundamental truth that we cannot save the planet without uplifting the voices of its people - especially those most often unheard. Written by Leah Thomas, a prominent voice in the field and the activist who coined the term intersectional environmentalism, this book is simultaneously a call to action, a guide to instigating change for all, and a pledge to work toward the empowerment of all people and the betterment of the planet. 

Thomas shows how not only are Black, Indigenous, and people of color unequally and unfairly impacted by environmental injustices but she argues that the fight for the planet lies in tandem to the fight for civil rights; and in fact, that one cannot exist without the other. An essential listen, this book addresses the most pressing issues that the people and our planet face, examines and dismantles privilege, and looks to the future as the voice of a movement that will define a generation.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great

This book is a great start if you’re looking to get a glimpse of the systems that have pushed our world & communities to climate crisis. A clear concise listen that will encourage you to further explore in depth, the systems of discrimination that keep the climate in crisis and capitalism functioning as it is meant to.
