Bryan Lewis settled into the executive director position at Detroit’s EcoWorks environmental nonprofit in October 2020, taking the helm of a 40-year-old organization that has fought for environmental equity since day one. With the strength of the organization’s legacy as a base and a fresh generation of organized and inspired BIPOC leaders at the ready, he sees ways to leverage this moment of clean energy transition to create more just, equitable and healthy lives for thousands of Michigan people. His leadership comes at a crucial moment, as Detroit suffers dangerous flooding and heat waves driven by global warming and hitting low-income communities of southeast Michigan hardest. Bryan joins host Kate Madigan and guest host Jamie Simmons of Michigan Climate Action Network. Learn more about EcoWorks at EcoWorksDetroit.org.
