139.jpg

  On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation about efforts to get green voters to the polls. According to the Environmental Voter Project, as many as 20 million registered voters list environmental issues as one of their top priorities, but historically, few turn out on Election Day.

Guests:

Marianne Lavelle, award winning reporter covering the environment, science, law, and business for InsideClimate News

Nathaniel Stinnett, founder of the Environmental Voter Project
