Last month our Creative Force Foundation was pleased in awarding Leah Thomas of California our annual Fall award and check in Business and Society writing. Read here The Intersectional Environmentalist for a well written and sharp account of this massively inclusive handbook.

Before the crowds at the 6th annual New York State Writer’s Institute’s Fall Book Festival, Leah spoke with a maturity and social calm seldom seen in a 28 year old first book writer.


Look this month for our interview with Leah Thomas at Mia Funk’s One Planet Podcast series now reaching 114 University subscribers.

Of this coherent and smart book, please consider Pages 37 and 38, where she describes the lens and goals of the book and its movement. Brilliant in its smart brevity

Pages 40 shows us the woman who stated the path to environmental justice in 1955, the year of my birth.

Yes Leah Thomas — environmental justice is a wider lens than the Caucasian Elites who started and maintained the big ten environmental groups for decades since the 1970s. I did not know this having written on Lois Gibbs of Niagara Falls in the early 80s.

As you correctly state — ”some humans are facing environmental harm” — not just polar bears and lovely wildlife. Keep it on.
