Tia Nelson joins Queery host Patsy McKenzie to talk about climate activism.
Tia Nelson has deep connections to Wisconsin’s environmental activism. She’s held several high-profile positions at the Nature Conservancy, the Wisconsin Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, and currently is the Managing Director of the Outrider Foundation’s Climate program.
Climate activism is in her blood – her father is former Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day. In this episode of Queery, Tia Nelson joins host Patsy McKenzie to talk about climate activism, her current projects, and Earth Day’s legacy.
