We talk with May Boeve, climate power lady and executive director of 350.org, about reaching across divisions and winning climate fights against all odds, how to sustain ourselves and fellow activists for the long haul, and what it's like to be in a Vogue photo shoot.

**One editorial note: There's a mistake in our Dinner Party Climate Fact, which states that wind and solar were the number one source of energy last year in the US and worldwide. That is incorrect - it should have state that wind and solar were the number one NEW source of energy. Sorry about that, listeners!

Rank #15: #11 Fill the Cracks with Gold with Nellis Kennedy-Howard

Podcast cover
Read more
We get real exploring how we can make beauty out of brokenness, inspired by the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, and we chat with Nellis Kennedy-Howard about the women of Standing Rock, how we can't leave our identities at the door of our activism, and making the climate movement welcoming to everyone.

Nellis Kennedy-Howard is the Sierra Club’s Director of Equity, Inclusion and Justice where she leads the effort to transform Sierra Club into an organization that welcomes and values people from all walks of life. Prior to working for Sierra Club, Nellis spent four years working alongside Winona LaDuke as Co-Executive Director at the national Native environmental non-profit organization, Honor the Earth. She became an environmentalist after she learned of the country's largest area of uranium contamination and discovered it was just a short distance from her family's home on the Navajo Reservation.
