Amira Chandi

Intersectional Environmentalist
Amira (she/they) is an environmental equity consultant, multimedia artist + model, and researcher of localized fibersheds + food systems and Ayurvedic healing. her commitment to advocating for all people + ecosystems grew on the farm while learning how to nurture and be nurtured by the karela patches, raspberry shrubs, and acres of green from her grandpa. she believes that fashion, land, and identity are inextricably related and utilizes her research work + arts practices to bring unheard and underrepresented narratives intertwining land, identity, and fashion to the forefront.

Intersectional Environmentalist (IE) is a climate justice community and resource hub centering BIPOC and historically under-amplified voices in the environmental space. They curate accessible educational resources + experiences while serving as an incubator to spark ideas, promote collaboration + connect our community with grassroots environmental justice efforts. IE seeks to empower our audience to create change in their local communities and to root their environmental practice in equity and inclusion. They believe climate justice is social justice, that everyone can play a role in the environmental movement and that protecting the planet means amplifying the voices of those often unheard. 
​Three of the members of IE, including two of its founders, will join us at Ripple Conference 2022! You can read more about them below.
