This week we were so excited to get to sit down with Nathaniel Stinnett, executive director and founder of the Environmental Voter Project, to get some insights about the recent election and what climate activists can learn from it. Nathaniel brings some truly valuable insight into who climate voters are, what happened with the Latinx vote in 2020, and what EVP is planning in Georgia for the special Senate races currently underway.

Felix Tropf, a professor in […]
