Online: Culture & Climate Justice with Diandra Esperza

May 30 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

What is a culture keeper? And how does maintaining and honoring cultural traditions support climate resilience? In this talk from Diandra Esparza, Executive Director at Intersectional Environmentalist, she shares about the ways her heritage and art influence her climate justice activism – and how we can each harness our own cultural backgrounds to take action for people and the planet.

Diandra Marizet Esparza (she/her) is an organizational development strategist, published writer, poet and co-founder of Intersectional Environmentalist, where she currently serves as the Executive Director. Diandra’s work seeks to help environmentalists everywhere recognize culture as an expression of relationship to land. Her work advocates for the accessibility of diverse stories for rising generations. Diandra is a contributing writer in the academically adopted book The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet.
