From a job in oil in Venezuela to Climate Work in the USA

I recently met one of the most enthusiastic and positive people I have encountered in a long time. Solemi Hernandez is a new staff member at Citizens Climate Lobby and serves as the coordinator in the SouthEast region, which includes all of Florida. Originally from Venezuela, I asked if she would chat with me about her work.

Solemi speaks like a poet, so expressive and transparent. She speaks powerfully about her feelings during this dreadful time of climate change and how acting to do something about it in her community and beyond is the antidote she needed for despair. Listen to her in this one-minute excerpt from a recent Citizens Climate Radio episode.

I encourage you to check out the entire conversation.
