House on Fire
New Year, New World feat. Varshini Prakash, Executive Director, The Sunrise Movement
In 2020, we lost lives to a deadly pandemic, climate catastrophes and police brutality. Amidst the chaos of it all, young leaders realized 2020 was no anomaly. It became clear that the system they once understood as “normal” was driving us toward extinction, so they began imagining and building worlds beyond it. On this episode of House on Fire, we’re joined by Varshini Prakash, the Executive Director of The Sunrise Movement, to imagine this better world and discuss what needs to be done to achieve it. From leading a divestment campaign on her college campus to spearheading the movement for a Green New Deal, Varshini embodies one of the most remarkable journeys in the climate movement.
