Creating Environmental Justice: An Interview with Georgia Conservation Voters director Brionte McCorkle

Brionte McCorkle discusses the connection between racial injustice (disproportionately harming people of color from the pandemic and from police violence) and environmental degradation --- where the many issues overlap in a call for environmental justice. At Georgia Conservation Voters, a chapter of the League of Conservation Voters, they are working toward creating a more diverse and inclusive environmental movement and electorate to elect and hold accountable political leaders who will be responsive to the needs and interests of all Georgia voters in having clean energy, clean air, clean water, mass transit, a stable climate, and an overall healthier living environment for humans and wildlife. Brionte shares some examples pertinent to Metro Atlanta and Albany, Georgia. The group's website is GCVoters.org   This 24-minute interview was conducted by host Carrie Freeman (former professor of Brionte at GSU back in the day) for the "In Tune to Nature" radio show on Radio Free Georgia, in June of 2020.

In Tune to Nature airs live Wednesdays from 6:30-7pm EST on radio station 89.3FM (metro-Atlanta) and worldwide on wrfg.org (Radio Free Georgia, non-commercial independent radio). The show's website is www.facebook.com/intunetonature
