The climate activist
At 14-years-old, Jamie Margolin was frustrated by climate inaction of elected officials and started organizing. Today, her impossible-to-ignore, youth-led movement and resource for budding activists, Zero Hour, is on a mission to draw the voices of diverse youth into conversations around climate change as they stage massive youth climate marches internationally. Jamie is also one of 13 plaintiffs suing her home state of Washington for not sufficiently protecting the climate. Her debut nonfiction book, Youth to Power, hits bookshelves worldwide in 2020.
