Pastor a guest on climate program
The Rev. Leo Woodberry, pastor of the Kingdom Living Temple, joined award-winning actor Mark Ruffalo for the premiere episode of a new livestreamed show on climate justice. The program aired Tuesday on The Solutions Project’s Facebook and YouTube accounts.
Presented by The Solutions Project, “Climate Curious” features celebrities, humor, and raw talk that educates, entertains, and inspires viewers to get involved in the climate justice movement. Ruffalo co-founded The Solutions Project.
Tuesday’s inaugural episode of Climate Curious is titled Justice First. Woodberry is co-founder of the Justice First campaign, which promotes environmental justice, forest protection, and 100% clean energy. Woodberry is also a member of the African American Environmental Justice Action Network. He was instrumental in uniting people of color across America, and in influencing the Ford Foundation and other philanthropic entities to support people of color and communities disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards.
Rev. Woodberry served on the steering committee of the Peoples Climate Movement, and continues to work on clean water and air issues and renewable and sustainable energy issues with South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Each Tuesday at 4 p.m., Climate Curious will highlight today’s most innovative changemakers in the climate justice movement, answer viewers’ questions, and entertain while it educates.
