Since 1985 I have been intimately involved in struggles against environmental racism and human rights abuses occurring in the United States and globally. My activism began with a youth movement organization in my hometown, Nashville, Tennessee, and continued with my participation and leadership in anti-apartheid, solidarity, animal rights, antiracist, global justice, and environmental justice movements. My parents' deep involvement in the civil rights movement in the U.S. South left an unmistakable imprint on my view of the world, and their wisdom continues to shape my thinking and political activities today.
