There are two social justice issues that I care deeply about.

Climate: we have a very short amount of time to radically reduce our global carbon emissions and I am highly motivated to do whatever I can to help solve this crisis.

Racism: learning about systematic and institutional racism in our country is a life-long journey and life-long work. 

Here’s a list of resources I recommend on the subjects:
