S1 | Gen GND Conversation with Jamie Margolin

Generation Green New Deal

Government & Organization

Jamie Margolin is a climate organizer from Seattle and freshman in college. As a 14 year old high school student, she co-founded the youth climate activist group Zero Hour and went on to help organize and lead the massive Youth Climate Strike in the fall of 2019. Jamie was a surrogate for Bernie Sanders during the 2020 Democratic primary, and is also a plaintiff in a climate lawsuit against her home state of Washington. Jamie also recently authored an amazing new book called “Youth to Power: Your Voice and How to Use It.” The book is a fascinating sort of DIY manual for activism and in each chapter, Jamie interviews another youth activist about a particular aspect of activism. Our conversation with Jamie is stitched together from a couple of different interviews, and it touches on how she came to activism at a young age, sparring with Republicans on Capitol Hill, writing her book, and dealing with burnout. Buy Jamie’s BookFollow Jamie on Twitter and InstagramGet involved with & support Zero HourSubscribe to GenGND's newsletterEpisode transcript available at generationgreennewdeal.com Learn more about your ad choices.
