Celebrating 10 Years of the Live Green Initiative and part of the National Affairs Series: Building a Better Democracy

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez has addressed the UN General Assembly, taken on local issues such as eliminating pesticides from parks, and is a lead plaintiff in a youth-led lawsuit against the U.S. government for their inaction on climate change. He is Youth Director of the Earth Guardians, a tribe of young activists, artists, and musicians inspiring global change.

Martinez published his first book, We Rise, last year, which was followed by an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
