Podcast Episode 001: Lynda Schneekloth Shownotes

The first six episodes of Season 1 of the Keeping Things Alive podcast showcase my interviews with six leaders of the 2015 Rise Up for Climate Justice movement in Buffalo, New York. This movement started a few months after Pope Francis published his Encyclical, On Care for Our Common Home, and a few months before the 2015 Paris Climate Conference. I was fortunate enough to participate in many of the events, and I was so impressed with the diversity and energy of the activists that came together during this time.

My first interview is with Lynda Schneekloth, who spearheaded the 2015 Rise Up for Climate Justice movement and organized many of the major events. Lynda is the advocacy chair of Western New York Environmental Alliance, Professor Emerita at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, former Sierra Club Niagara Group chair, co-founder of Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, and a grandmother. We discuss a variety of topics during this interview, including her background, co-founding Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, geothermal energy, and her experience with the 2015 Rise Up for Climate Justice campaign.
