Longtime Head of EPA's Environmental Justice Program: Biden's Climate Picks Show Power of Movements

As President-elect Joe Biden unveils key members of his team who will tackle what he called the "existential" threat of the climate crisis.

DN speaks to former Environmental Protection Agency official Mustafa Ali, who led the agency's environmental justice program until resigning in 2017 in protest of the Trump administration's policies.

Biden's picks for the Climate Cabinet are the result of "a transformational set of movements," says Ali, who is currently vice president of the National Wildlife Federation.

"It also speaks to all the hard, incredible work that environmental justice leaders have been doing to ensure that our president-elect is giving serious thought to vulnerable communities, to the impacts that are happening from the climate crisis."
