Portrait of a Sikh Activist

On September 16, Feet in 2 Worlds held a workshop on reporting climate change for ethnic and community media journalists. That Sunday more than 300,000 people took to the streets of Manhattan demanding action against climate change. Here’s a story about a Sikh activist who participated in the march.

This Cowbird portrait was produced for NYC-based eco-news blog The Warbler by Hannah Sheehan with photos by Erik Erikson.
