My research, writing, and activism center on racial justice. Most of my work examines the environmental injustices experienced by Black, Indigenous, and other peoples of color.


I believe that food and animal agriculture plays a critical role in the marginalization of Black, Indigenous, and Latinx people. The food we eat, the air we breathe, and the land on which we work suffer from environmental exploitation.


But I know that there is another way and my goal is to help us chart that path. My writing examines how marginalized communities could subvert industrial agriculture and create food sovereign communities in order to save ourselves and hopefully our planet.

"Blood in the Soil: The Racial, Racist, and Religious Dimensions of Environmentalism" was recently published in The Bloomsbury Handbook of Religion and Ecology.



From time to time, people care enough about what I say to record it. Click below for a list of videos and podcast interviews.
