Podcast Episode 003: Roger Cook 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 third interview is with Roger Cook, who is the Chair of the Western New York Working Families Party Issues Committee, Chair of the Sierra Club political committee, former Director of the Western New York Council on Occupational Safety & Health, and Founder of the Ecumenical Task Force of the Niagara Frontier, which advocated for the relocation of Love Canal and Forest Glen residents and built the NYS Labor-Environment Coalition.

Here are the shownotes, with links to more information about what we talk about during my interview with Roger Cook:
