Gen Z Environmental Justice Educator & Founder of QueerBrownVegan Isaias Hernandez will converse with Boston Public Library President David Leonard. Their 60-75 minute conversation will followed by an audience Q&A from both the in-person and virtual audiences.

Isaias Hernandez was born in Los Angeles, California, also known as Tongva Land. He grew up in Section 8 housing, was a recipient of food stamps, and lived in a community that faced environmental injustice. These firsthand experiences are where he’d eventually find his passion for the environment, social justice, and equity. As he witnessed the ways pollution affected his body and community, he turned his anger and sadness into a solution: creating environmental education that would prioritize accessibility and intersectionality. Isaias had the opportunity to earn his B.S. in Environmental Science at the University of California, Berkeley, and began gaining experience in diversity inclusion work in environmental spaces, academic research, and creative work.
