As co-executive director for the young, Black-womxn led nonprofit, Generation Green, she coined the term “environmental liberation” to describe a holistic framework that allows one to reimagine and tackle Black liberation, climate justice, and environmental justice together. She has worked with numerous environmental groups in the areas of policy, public engagement and programming.
