Podcast: CJA/Reclaiming Our Future: Community Resilience in the Face of COVID-19

Executive director Doria Robinson sits down with the Climate Justice Alliance podcast and other members of the CJA to discuss how the covid-19 crisis has effected each one of them.
Episode 3 – Reclaiming Our Future: Community Resilience in the Face of COVID-19
“Earlier this year, the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world and pressed pause on society as it was before, forcing even the powers that be to confront how extractive behaviors have left a gaping hole where social safety nets should be.
We are witnessing and demonstrating community resiliency, people power and the strength of Just Transitions as we reconnect with more intuitive ways of being, and as our neighbors and loved ones uplift one another and support each other through this struggle.
In late March, Keenan Rhodes and Jessica Xiao speak with leaders from five member organizations of the Climate Justice Alliance over Zoom (you may notice some variations in audio quality and Internet connection), who shared with us how they are responding to and existing in the current moment.
Our guests:
Joshua Dedmond, National Outreach Coordinator at Co-Op Jackson and the Youth and Young Worker Organizer for Labor Network for Sustainability
Doria Robinson, the Executive Director of Urban Tilth
Darryl Jordan, the senior organizer at East Michigan Environmental Action Council (EMEAC)
