No More Dead Zones: My Journey to the Fight for Climate Justice

I remember the first time we sailed through a “dead zone”.  I remember the dark red color of the water and the smell of the rotting fish floating on the water’s surface. I remember the thick and slimy red algae pushing against our boat and sticking to our rudder. Most of all, I remember realizing […]
