“Brooke has photographed countless climate justice actions – from the fracking fields of California’s Central Valley to the Peoples Climate March in NYC”
Brooke Anderson is a climate justice organizer and social movement photographer based in Oakland, CA. Brooke became involved in environmental justice at 17 years old when she helped shut down two toxic medical waste incinerators that were poisoning working class communities of color in her hometown in Champaign, IL. She then spent over a decade as a union and worker rights organizer, where she saw workers face disproportionate economic and ecological impacts of climate change. In response, she founded a project called Climate Workers to build a grassroots labor movement for climate justice in the Bay Area. Brooke is a collective member of the Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project. Brooke has photographed countless climate justice actions – from the fracking fields of California’s Central Valley to the Peoples Climate March in NYC. She is a proud union photographer and member of the Pacific Media Workers Guild, CWA Local 39521. More of Brooke’s work is available on her website.
