0ad7a2f558021c010c81532515512c0c-huge-anPeople of color are likely to be the most impacted by environmental and climate degradation. And yet, they are typically the most underrepresented in environmental organizations and the national conversation about cleaning up our environment. Our guest this month is Andrés Jimenez, Executive Director of Green2.0, an organization dedicated to increasing the diversity of voices being heard at the table when it comes to environmental justice. Before joining Green2.0, Andres was Senior Director of Government Affairs for Citizens' Climate Lobby. Before that, he was Associate Director of Government Relations at Ocean Conservancy. He has also worked on the Hill in the offices of Rep. Linda Sanchez and Rep. Howard Berman.
