Solutions News Welcomes Brent Goodlet (replay)
Brent Goodlet is a postdoctoral scholar and community organizer focused on grassroots campaigns. After coming to terms with the dire warnings of the scientific community about the climate crisis that we all now face, Brent and the Climate Strike SB team organized Santa Barbara’s first Climate Strike in September of 2019. They embraced the powerful and disruptive potential of a global general strike, as it is now being called for by numerous national and international groups, including 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg and her global Fridays For Future movement. The event included a coalition of partner organizations that have been—and will continue to be-- involved in the flight for environmental and climate justice, organized tabling events to engage with the public, a rally with speakers providing a diverse slate of community voices, and a march through the streets of Santa Barbara.
