Inflection Point 130: Isha Clarke organizing for Climate Justice

Isha Clarke is an activist with Youth vs Apocalypse. You may know her from a viral video where she asked Senator Dianne Feinstein to move the Green New Deal forward; she helped organize the youth Climate Strike in San Francisco that attracted 30,000 students, during the international "week of action" when Greta Thurnberg sailed to America. She is a high school student working every day to reverse the climate crisis because as she says..." we have this power and responsibility to make this radical change. And I hope that everyone listening will get involved and know that they have the power to do something."

PLUS We introduce a new segment called "Feminist Detective" where Lauren and author and guest Ruth Whippman seek out sexism in all its tiny guises so we can make big changes. This week's topic: "Fleabag".
