Public Speaking Engagements

I have given several public talks and am always open to sharing more! I love facilitating discussions on environmental and social justice issues because it brings communities here in the States closer to the communities I've lived and worked with in my stories. Having in-person discussions enables creative thinking and potential solutions to the problems facing our planet.
