Dejah Powell radiates passion when she speaks about the Sunrise Movement and the work she and other young people are doing to salvage a livable future by pressing U.S. politicians to respond to climate change at the magnitude that science says is necessary.
“I'm 25 years old. I spend every waking hour of my life trying to fight this climate crisis,” she said March 18 during the keynote panel conversation at the Loyola University Chicago annual climate change conference.
