Lorah is a senior politics-environmental studies major from Sequim, Washington. As a sophomore she revamped CCC’s Cool the Schools science outreach program which connects Whitman students with middle school classrooms to teach lessons on climate change. She is also an active member of the Divest Whitman campaign. Lorah’s passion for environmental justice informs her activism on campus. She believes that as a privileged institution of higher learning, Whitman has a responsibility to acknowledge intersections of social oppression and environmental degradation. This means that Whitman must not only promote sustainably on campus but also enact policies which confront larger structures of environmental injustice.
