Lily Aaron Attends COP26 (2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference)

Parents: Allison & Todd Aaron
Members Since 2007

“I am so excited to be participating in such a once-in-a-lifetime event, especially at something as pivotal as COP26! My organizing in climate justice was truly sparked through regenerative agriculture, and the many intersections it has — from food apartheid in Evanston to its ability to sequester loads of carbon back into the soil. I am beyond thrilled to be bringing this and many other aspects of my organizing to COP26, where I will be engaging with the next generation of climate-conscious young folks, strengthening my understanding of the power of grassroots organizing, and truly delving into the ins & outs of radical climate policy. I am eager to learn from those who have made amazing headway in the fight for climate justice and to take what I have gained back to my community in any way that I can. I will be sure to share everything I learn back with the Beth Emet community, where I know we will strive towards honoring the intersectionality of Judaism and climate justice.”
