The Surprising Truth About Environmentalists and Voting (Re-Broadcast and Update)

49 minutes

As the US presidential election nears, we wanted to re-share a conversation we had on Warm Regards in October of 2018 with Nathaniel Stinnett, the founder and executive director of the Environmental Voter Project. Many of the things we discussed with him then, especially why lots of environmentalists don't vote, are just as relevant today. After the 2018 conversation, Nathaniel shares an update about the organization's work leading up to this year's presidential election and how you can get involved beyond voting.
