Asian American environmental advocate and regional organizer Andrea Chu Image Courtesy of Jon TaalaAndrea Chu is a Taiwanese-American who organizes Asian American coalitions for climate justice.

She harnesses the intersection of Asian American identity, racial justice, and environmental justice to broaden Asian American inclusion within environmental reform.

Like other communities of color, Asian American communities are impacted by the harms of segregation and pollution.
