Episode Info:

My guest for episode 9 is Sue Lenander, program director for Plant for the Planet Seattle. She is also, I learned during our interview, an extremely committed and courageous activist. I wanted to interview Sue to find out how she recruits families and spreads her organization’s message -- and to explore the connection between trees and community building. We talked about those things, but Sue also shared a bit of her own story –- how she came to realize that her life choices had contributed to our climate crisis and how she honors her commitment to be part of the solution. She has participated in or is connected to some of the most impactful direct action climate resistance of this decade. Get ready to be inspired by my conversation with Sue Lenander.
