Wait, you’re getting paid to be here?!

Isaias Hernandez (he/they) is an educator and creative from Los Angeles. He’s more commonly known by his moniker, Queer Brown Vegan: the independent media platform he started to bring intersectional environmental education to all. They’ve been featured in Vogue, New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and Yale Climate Communications. His social media advocacy earned him recognition as a top climate creator by Harvard C-CHANGE.

Being overworked and underpaid is a reality in many activist spaces. In the fourth episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover chats with Isaias Hernandez about unpaid labour in activism and the difficulties of building his career whilst receiving scrutiny for his own choices in climate spaces. Stick around to hear Isaias spill their climate confession.

“I was invited to do a speaking engagement and I asked, ‘how much are you paying?’ — I was gaslighted and told that it should be an honor and privilege that I talk in this space because they don’t usually give out opportunities like that.” - Isaias Hernandez
