Cow Karma: Confessions of a Carnivore

My name is Kimberly and I like meat, a lot. I’ve heard that the unsustainable production of beef in the United States accounts for a large portion of the greenhouse gasses that we emit. 

Kimberly reports on the Food, Faith, and Health Disparities Summit

On Friday October 29, 2010, I attended the Food, Faith, and Health Disparities Summit. The ambiance was very vivacious and I felt welcomed and strangely happy despite my difficulties in locating the entrance of the church.

Meet Fall Intern: Kimberly!

My name is Kimberly White and I will be a Fall Intern with Sustainable Flatbush. I am a freshman at CUNY Baruch and I intend to pursue a double major in environmental engineering and agriculture, with a minor in sustainability. Previously I interned with Recycle-A-Bicycle as a student mechanic.

I was inspired to mobilize, organize and educate others about the environmental justice movement by Community Roots (a youth summer program at Brooklyn College). I’m excited to work in solidarity with Sustainable Flatbush to engage a myriad of cultures into sustainable development.  Particularly I’m interested in the racial and cultural dynamics of the green movement.

This curiosity of the racial and environmental inequities embedded in our culture and therefore in the uneven development of sustainability is attested to an environmental justice trip that I embarked on with the youth-led organization NY2NO. Additionally I’m interested in solar energy and becoming further educated about how this system works.

Kimberly and the bees

I’m an amateur bee-keeper, a biker, activist, and an almost intern of Sustainable Flatbush! I’m looking forward to working in solidarity with Flatbush as I believe that our liberation is entwined with each other’s.
