Welcome to the Green Seattle Partnership Earth Month Book Club! We have curated a list of books we recommend that explore topics and first hand accounts of Indigenous and Intersectional Environmentalism all over the world. In addition to this reading list, we will be holding a live virtual book club discussion on April 21st at 4pm PST. We will be discussing WHEREAS by Layli Long Soldier (slide 9 below). 

In addition to our Book Club, we are also recommending the following learning and exploration opportunities to celebrate Earth Day this year:

SELF GUIDED AND EXPLORATORY ACTIVITIES:

PODCASTS:

  • Raíces Verdes – “A platform dedicated to validating, archiving and sharing the experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of color in connection to the environment. Raíces Verdes is a storytelling platform for healing our relationship with the earth and with each other.”
  • Growing Old – “This is the kind of story that begins in a forest, on the traditional lands of the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, Suquamish, and Coast Salish People, past and present. It’s a story about Seattle’s urban forest and the humans that live within it.”
  • Breaking Green Ceilings – “A weekly interview series that amplifies the voices of environmentalists from historically underrepresented communities including Disabled, Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color and our Accomplices.”
