Fascinating interview with climate and food justice activist Nancy Romer on my WBAI show Trump Watch

She serves on the New York Steering Committee of the April 29th DC March for Climate, Jobs and Justice and is an active member of the Environmental Justice Committee of her union, the Professional Staff Congress of CUNY, an AFT local . She was professor of psychology at Brooklyn College for 42 years and was active in anti-racist, feminist, union and anti-war organizing at CUNY. She was a founder of the Brooklyn Food Coalition and has travelled extensively and written about peasant and agricultural movements, in South America, Central America, the Indian subcontinent and the US. She learned first hand how the present food system has contributed mightlly to climate change and how feeding the world's people will become more difficult as climate change moves rapidly forward. She is one of the organizers of the Food and Farm Justice hub of the April 29th March for Climate, Jobs and Justice.
