Vanessa Nakate is #SolvingIt

Vanessa Nakate is on a mission to stop the whitewashing of the climate movement

The climate crisis is devastating the global south, but Vanessa Nakate won’t let Africa get erased from the climate change conversation. First inspired by the Fridays for Future movement, Vanessa took to the streets to protest for climate action in Uganda, and then founded the Rise Up climate movement to amplify other African climate activists. Vanessa is #SolvingIt by showing up, speaking up and demanding that racial justice be prioritized alongside climate justice.
