Remember, Episode 10 - Jill Mangaliman: Coming Together for Justice
My guest for episode 10 is Jill Mangaliman, executive director of Got Green. Got Green is a south-Seattle based grassroots organization led by low income people and people of color that “cultivates multi-generational community leaders to be central voices in the Green Movement in order to ensure that the benefits of the green movement and green economy ... reach low income communities and communities of color.”
Got Green is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and Jill has been with the organization since the early days. I talked with Jill about the challenges of organizing a community that is rapidly being displaced and about the ways in which coming together can effect change – and not just from a policy perspective. It can awaken us to new ways of interacting and remind us to model the world we are trying to build with the people who are in the struggle with us.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Jill as much as I did.
