In brief: The lovely Desi Doyen from The Green News Report is on to talk climate activism and harm reduction in the Trump era. There’s definitely some bad news, but my always positive friend will keep you from throwing your hands up and storming out. Also on the show, the brilliant Claudia Garcia-Rojas, on in her role as co-director of The Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Girls & Young Women. Prepare yourself: she will blow your mind more than once.
