Today, CJA launched its first podcast series: Stories from Home: Living the Just Transition. In this inaugural episode, hosted by CJA fellow, youth organizer and artist, Keenan Rhodes of the Kheprw Institute in Indianapolis, we chat with CJA member organizations, creators and the frontline communities spotlighted in our new Story Snapshots project, launching next week.
The podcast series will air monthly and spans across landscapes and languages to provide the listener with experiences from the often overlooked but extremely valuable climate justice work of everyday people, as they decolonize through cooking, paint future visions on the page, build family, take back food systems and more.
Over the next few months, we’ll be airing Stories from Home to provide a behind the scenes look at Story Snapshots from the Indigenous Environmental Network (global), Micronesia Climate Change Alliance (Guam), Southwest Organizing Project (Albuquerque, NM), and GreenRoots (Boston, MA). The full episode schedule is below.
