Giovana Schluter Nunes
I am a climate movement organizer. I've led successful campaigns to phase out coal-fired power plants, divest millions of dollars from the fossil fuel industry, and pass a Green New Deal bill for New York State, legislation that the New York Times called “one of the world’s most ambitious climate plans.” I am currently Campaign Director for the Climate Jobs National Resource Center, where I'm working with the American labor movement to tackle the climate crisis, reverse income inequality, and win millions of unionized clean energy jobs.
I am the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship in creative writing and have been awarded residencies at the Mesa Refuge and J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice. My first book, Warmth, will be published by Penguin Random House in August 2021, with translations in Dutch and Korean.
I spend my free time reading novels, climbing rocks, and taking long walks without my phone.
