Spotlight on Nonviolence - Khadija Khokhar

In this Spotlight on Nonviolence, Katherine Whiteside chats with Khadija Khokar, a fellow student at GW who is involved in climate activism and the organization Zero Hour. She discusses how all of the oppressive systems that hold up this world are ultimately contributing to the climate crisis and how the conversation surrounding this issue needs to recognize this and not focus so much on the individual. She combats these problems through organizing climate strikes, working on community building, and pushing for divestment in her area. We can all learn from her experiences taking initiative to fight for a better future.
