a conversation with Joy Towles Ezell
In this episode, I have the pleasure of speaking with Joy Towles Ezell, an environmental activist and community organizer from Florida who has been working for about 40 years to protect current and future generations from large polluters in her home state. In this episode Joy talks about her start in environmental activism, her long history with the Fenholloway River and pollution, having her phone tapped and other threats, and the importance (and RIGHT) of asking questions.
This episode is not-to-be-missed. Joy is an inspiration to us all and being on the same planet as her is simply exhilarating. Joy’s stories and fearlessness play out like a love letter to the activist community—inspiring elders and young people alike to start asking questions, learning, and advocating.
