Lindsay is the executive director of Georgia WAND Education Fund Inc., a grassroots, women-led, multiracial organization bridging the rural/urban divide, advancing environmental and climate justice, addressing outsized militarized spending, and ending systemic violence, especially in relation to nuclear weapons and the nuclear energy industry. Recently she was invited to join the United Nations Centers of Regional Expertise, co-chair the US Climate Action Network (USCAN)’s Equitable and Ambitious Climate Vision, and join the Environmental Justice Committee of the Coalition for the People’s Agenda. Lindsay is concurrently supporting Partnership for Southern Equity’s Just Energy Circle and SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective’s Roundable series. She also represents Georgia WAND at the ProGeorgia state table and several working groups, and has been elected to the ProGeorgia Board of Directors. Lindsay believes that economic empowerment through business education and community development is the strongest weapon to promote peace and combat the damage that systemic violence, nuclear production, and inequitable public funding and policies cause all of us.
I am most excited to work on projects that…. allow for the amplification of frontline community leadership and narrative.
I am looking for partners that can help me…. identify partners who are aligned with our communities and values, and who are willing to collaborate in a bold and transformational way.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was.… when I realized that the way we are doing the work with our partners is the only way we are going to claim our collective power—by building one relationship at a time.
Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on…. are those that allow for groups with more resources to support the work of grassroots and frontline groups and community leadership, in conjunction with technology and information sharing strategies.
