Hip Hop Caucus Launches New Environmental Justice Podcast

March 13, 2018

As the Trump administration continues to publicly question the legitimacy of climate change, a new podcast is moving the conversation forward in decidedly productive, proactive ways.

Think 100%” debuts today (March 13) at 6 p.m. ET and will be broadcast weekly, featuring interviews with community leaders, politicians, artists and environmental activists. Launched by politically progressive nonprofit Hip Hop Caucus, it’s hosted by the organization’s president and CEO, Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., and Mustafa Santiago Ali, senior vice president of climate, environmental justice and community revitalization who formerly served as an administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency.

“’Think 100%’ comes at a crucial time for our communities now and for future generations, whose health and lives are jeopardized by the fossil fuel industry and elected leaders that value profits over people,” said Ali, in a statement released by Hip Hop Caucus. “Featuring stories from communities facing deadly impacts from pollution and climate change, and conversations with celebrities, artists, activists, youth leaders, Congressional Members, issue experts and more, the show will break down barriers between issues within the movement for justice and a sustainable planet for all.”
